Calf feeding

We have been bottle feeding a twin bull calf for the last five weeks. He seems to be doing fine on the milk replacer but shows no interest in eating calf feeder nor hay. Is this ok and when should I expect to see him start to eat?

He should have fresh water and a good calf starter grain in front of him at all times. After he finishes his bottle, cut some grain in his mouth. After a few times he'll get the idea and start eating it on his own.
