Got them about 2 hours ago. They look terrified. They are just huddled together in the sleeping area and havent moved.

Give them a few days to settle in and to become accustomed to their new surroundings.

They'll calm down. Have you got the type of food and the water container type (bottle or bowl) that they are used to? If so they'll be fine, maybe offer them some carrot or something to tempt them.

Takes a good few days for them to settle & start venturing our to find food.

Keep their immediate environment calm.

Our new ones are 2 weeks in & they already love to sit on us, eat from our hands, run around us etc.
