Hi, is this what my gecko should be walking like? These are my first two babies ever so im not sure if it should be walking like this, please help me and if it is then what do i do?

Also when do i start feeding them, its been about a week and a half and they havent eaten mealworms, should i try crickets?

Heres the one i think has a broken back left leg.

It doesn't look broken to me. Some geckos can have what seems to me to be loose joints in either the knee or the shoulder. I have seen that with some of mine. I would imagine its walking will even out eventually. Just keep an eye on it. I have found that some hatchlings take a lot longer to eat than others. Keep offering and if you want, hold it and gently poke a mealworm at its mouth until it bites it. It just may need an "intro" to food.
