So recently I got 3 leopard geckos from a breeder near me. They are all healthy leopard geckos with 2 weighing 45 grams and 1 weighing 72 grams. Their tails are plump and no signs of parasites or calcium deposits. Its been roughly 5 days since I got them and none of them want to eat. Ive tried meal worms and crickets dusted in calcium powder. Ive also tried hand feeding them and putting worms in a bowl overnight for them to eat but none of them have touched the worms. How do you guys get your picky leopards to eat?

This is not unusual for a gecko in a new place. It can take a week or more. Are you feeding them the same thing the breeder was feeding them? I recommend you keep offering and see what happens. I thing they'll eat eventually. I've had some real holdouts and they all were eventually fine.
