 HELP!!!!!!! Young anacondas

I have 2 baby anacondas ...well a few months old and about 4ft long.(They are brother and sister)
I used to have a yellow one for years which was about 14ft when she died of old age.
The 2 new ones seem to be shedding constantly and 2 days ago completely shed but now have milky eyes again!! Is this normal????
This also seems to be affecting them eating. One has not eaten for over 4 weeks but is the bigger of the 2 and seems quite healthy The smaller one has eaten 2 chicks in that time
Should I be concerned about the larger one not eating ?? and if so what can I do. My old snake never ate whilst shedding ....these seem to be constantly shedding
Anty advice would be very very appreciated

 HELP!!!!!!! Young anacondas

Constant shedding might mean they have mites, or some other sort of skin irritation, check for mites.
