Good advice Ralph, It is true that each of these guys do have differing personalities and thus respond to different things. One of my calico babies will strike only once, drop the pink, and after that he flies out of the container like he's running for dear life! lol

I would only add a couple of things. I usually initally offer my baby amazons live pinks because I breed my own rodents. Some neonates however respond better to dead pinks heated up in a bowl of hot tap water. Often you have to keep heating them up until they begin to bloat like a hot dog...hence I call them "hotdog pinks"!

Another thing...often young tree boids will respond better if the container is misted heavily and covered about a half hour before feeding trials are begun. The misting promotes activity and prowling for food, etc. This especially works well with baby emeralds!

Keep a chin up boaguy! Put away the pinky pump!!...go to your book store and buy a hot and engaging novel to read for your feeding trials!LoL! and Good Luck!!
John
