Re: Hatchling Refusing To Eat.

You could look into purchasing a pinky pump, or simply try assist feeding (holding the snake and gently working the pinky into it's mouth until it takes over swallowing) but if the snake isn't healthy enough to eat on its own it may be better to let it go. Not every hatchling will thrive or even survive to grow out, some simply aren't quite right, and will die off along the way to adulthood IME.
