shouldn't be hard at all. once corns are eating well, they will usually eat whatever you offer them.

if for some reason you do have a hard time with it, just make a gradual transistion. stunned/ prekilled live mice, then frozen scented*, then straight frozen.

to scent a frozen, let it thaw in some slightly dirty bedding from a mouse tank. sometimes frozen seem to lose a little scent especially if thawed in water with a lot of chlorine in it. that or the chlorine masks the scent.

you may have to wiggle the frozen mouse to get the snake worked up, but for all of mine over the years i was able to just lay the mouse next to their hide. they'd come crawling out after 30 or so seconds and grab the mouse.
