It took my first one 2 days before it ate. It will probably eat sometime soon. I am also concerned about you putting a male in the cage. There are several reasons not to. One is that they could spread diseases to one another. You should allow a few months before putting any new animal in with another. Quaranteening can prevent any unnecesary illnesses. Another bad thing about adding the male so fast is that it could really stress the female out. He may try to mate with her or steal all the food before she can get some. I would really recommend separating them immediately. If she's not eating now she may be stressed out from getting in her new home, but now she has to compete with the male and worry about him trying to mate with her to add to the stress. I don't know of many people who house their animals together all the time. I don't, and many other people don't either. Most only put the male in with the female for a few days then take the male out so that it doesn't cause the female to stress out. Even if you were to house them together it is too soon. I'm sure others on here will agree. I'm not trying to be an a**. I'm just trying to help prevent an unnecesary accident. I hope it eats soon :)

I got my crestie sunday and she hasnt eaten. How long before i should expect her to eat? I also added a male into the cage today. Beautiful. Thanks
