I just bought two little girls and got their new home put together and one of them is eating and drinking water semi normally but the other one won’t leave the little hideaway at all and I’m worried about her. I’m not sure what to do or if I should be worried at all? I feel like I have a newborn baby all over again 😅

Shes likely scared to death. Try moving the food and water close to the hidey, and even putting it in a covered area. She could be afraid of the "house eagles" coming to eat her.

She may very well eat under cover of darkness as well.

Yes I figured they are both very scared. I will try that and see how she does today, thank you!

They will get used to you and the cage. It’s really overwhelming to be such a small baby with big humans, new smells, different environment, and different food.
