My adult females have all resumed feeding. My adult male has not. I have noticed that my males usually refuse food until after the mating season is over. The babies I have are just beginning to feed for their first time since they were born in late July. I have noticed that they go through spurts where they will feed and when they will not. The trick is just to feed them like crazy when they are in a feeding spurt so they will be able to keep a healthy body weight during their fasts.
