    I wait a week and a half to 2 weeks before i feed mine. I just keep the water bowl full until then.
     
  3. Wait a week and then throw some crickets in. If she takes them, great, but if she doesn't then remove them and try again in a couple days. Keep the water full. The dark color is normal after a molt for blondis. It will get lighter with time.

    okay wasnt' sure if she'd be hungry right away or not.
    Thanks.
     
  5. How big is she? That will approximately determine how long you should wait to offer her food.

    her molt is about 2'' so she is im guessing about 4''-4.5'' now maybe little bit bigger.
