question about boas refusing rats

i finally figured out that my poor feeder is not really a poor feeder but just doesn't like rats!!! i feel she's going to be a pain in the butt.

i tried the pro exotics method. offer a mouse then a rat. she ate the mouse and ignore the rat.

i tried washing the rat, then putting some mouse dirt on it and letting a few mouse walk over it. she was interested but didn't eat.

what am i going to try now? and if she gets eating rats will she ever become an aggreessive rat eater or just enough not to die?

thanks a lot

(ps. the set up is just like the male. he eats everything)
