My male was problematic until I offered a spit-brained pinkie.

I had a couple of females from my last clutch that just wouldn't start eating. After they hibernated (without eating) I brought them back up to room temp and they still weren't eating!

Then Ryan Hoyer offered me a suggestion that worked for both of them at once - I put a f/t pinkie (intact) under a rather tight fitting hide box. I piled up some litter so that the litter was touching the underside of the hide box and then put a pinkie and the snake under the hide box (so they were sort of pressed gently into a confined space). Next morning, both females had eaten. I had to feed them like that half a dozen times and then they started eating without all the effort.
