They may just be adjusting to their new enclosure. Just keep trying and eventually they will eat. Remember to remove feeders though if they are not eaten within an hour.

Yeah, just give them some time to settle in. I will suggest to leave them alone for a week and then try again.

What everyone else said. Leave them alone for a few days to settle in and offer an appropriate size feeder again. If you got something that is young and may have had a bad trip getting to you (in the mail) and you feel that it needs help. You can use an eye dropper to put a tiny drop of water on the the mouth or chelicerae. the same thing can be done with the squishy innards of a cricket. Then hold them very still a hair away from the chelicerae. Even though the scorpion may not be activly hunting it's hunger will get the best of it.

But that is a last case emergency situation. Most scorpions only eat once a week. Or even once every 14 days. don't try to over feed them.
