    Why stop eating before mature?

    Hi! Im getting frustrated with my girls! All 3 of them were my best eaters, never missing a meal! My 3 year old ultramel stopped eating like 5 month ago, around 1200g. She eat only once since then. She didnt loose weight. My 2 year old pieds are around 1000g, they are starting now to refuse as well! They moved into their permanent 3*2 feet ikea samla tub rack recently, but they seem to be adjusted to it. They are on f/t small rats from the beginning. Did you experienced this with your animals as well? What would you try? These are pictures of them.

    If the husbandry was the same as before when they ate consistently, and they barely lost weight, don't stress over it. Eating a bunch and then not eating at all is completely normal and something they would do in the wild. Keep offering 2-3 or even 4 weeks and watch their weight and health. Mine is doing the same thing. Eventually they decide what they want to do.

    It is actually pretty common and there is a name for it, it's called the wall and usually happen around that size.

    Be patient they will feed again in the mean time just male sure that you husbandry is on point.
