    Wait until they've done a bit of webbing or whatever it is that your species might do. That should be around a week I would say. Once they seem comfortable and settled in, go ahead and feed.

    you could try NOW too.. if it refuses it refuses.. its already on edge, a failed offer of food wont kill it. hell, it may even SUBDUE the t and make it relax

    everybody always says wait a week (and even i TYPICALLY give that advice) but there is no real harm in it, and i have fed right after rehousing a bunch.. right after unpacking too

    I do try to feed my Ts after rehousing but if they refuse, I just wait until the next feeding day. They always tend to make a web "placemat" whenever they eat so I figured, the more web, the more comfortable the T is.
