Dont give up.

I bought Jin some Nylabones, shes had them for months and then randomly picked one up and chowed down on it!

Some things need to 'stand' for a while before they are worth munching!

Mine weren't interested for ages, they'd have brief nibbles but it's taken them 10 months tp finally get a taste for them
Soaking in water helped - I soaked one overnight and they definately showed more interest the next day. Filing them down slightly to expose the inside/marrow can help apparently. Have heard of people spreading food on them too, e.g. tiny smear of Marmite.

Would be careful with how much Marmite you use as it's very salty
