They are beautiful. Congratulations!

What temperature did you incubate them at? Hatchlings don't usually eat until their first shed, but there is a first time for everything. Seperate them if possible. They are easily intimidated by other geckos, and might no eat properly or at all.

Good luck.

Nice babies, I would defintely keep them separate. They will do alot better on their own, and grow faster.

They should shed on day 3 or 4. Offer them some small crickets. Make sure the paper towel is quite damp until they have shed.

Congratulations and good luck.
