Re: Afraid to eat infront of me

my two baby RES does that to me. I\'ve had them for about 1 1/2 month and they are still scared of me. They shrink their heads in when they notice me looking at them and they try to run away from me when i try to pick them up! will they eventually change the way the treat me in time??
