No need to make 3 posts within an hour...patience, please.

If your 'pede is "fat" and kills the prey without consuming any of it, that is a likely sign that you're overfeeding it. 2 weeks isn't very long at all between feedings.

They're probably just not ready to feed yet, I wouldn't worry.

You should only worry if they were thin and not eating. Their weight looks fine, so they are probably not eating because they are still stressed and not settled in, or gonna molt. Don't worry for now.
