Don't worry, keep trying. Here are some tips from a previous post by 'Brad'. And search this forum - there are tons of posts on this topic.

* Dipping the pinkie in Chicken broth.
* Dipping the pinkie in egg whites.
* Rubbing the pinkie with a frog.
* Rubbing a pinkie with a day gecko.
* Putting the pinkie in a small container with a frog/day gecko for 1 day.
* Split braining.
* Allowing the Hognose to go into "feed mode" with a frog in the cage and then
removing the frog and quickly replacing with a fuzzy. (Thanks to this idea from
Chris, it worked for me.
* Thawing out a pinkie with warm water then offer to the Hognose.
* Rubbing the entrails of a frog/day gecko on the pinkie.
* Putting the pinkie inside the hollowed out cavity of a frog/day gecko.
* Putting the Hognose inside a small container with the pinkie and leaving
overnight.
