 Quick question.....

i’ve had a childrens sense she was born. i actually got her to eat her first meal. they’re soo little as babys, it almost looked like i bought a worm when i got her haha. but mine wasn’t hard at all. I didn’t feed her for about 2 weeks i think it was after i got her. I think she was about a month old before she ate for the first time. I just made sure it was a really little pinky, and i thawed it out in warm water to make it look more alive to her (heat sensative pits) didn’t take much coaxing. the only thing was for the first few months of feeding she kept taking the damn mouse butt to head. She grew out of that phase though. good luck!
