 Picky Irian Jaya

I recently purchased an Irian Jaya carpet python and he is being really picky. He was fed weaned rats at the pet store so i plan on staying with rats for prey. My problem is, is that he was fed in the cage and i have always found feeding them in a separate container was better. but he wont eat the rat pup. ive used tongs but all i can get is a defensive bite. Not a full strike or coil. ANY suggestions. I have had snake 1 week.
