The next time you feed him chicken, as soon as he finishes swallowing the chicken and is still in feed mode, pick up a dead rodent with your tongs and stick it in front of his face. He should still be in feed mode and will quickly eat the next food item. Before you try this, make sure he is good and hungry and has not fed for five or six days. I have done this to get a reluctant indigo to accept rodents.
You may also try smearing a piece of "grocery store" fish on a rodent. Get it good and fishy smelling, then offer to the indigo. I sometimes put the rodent into a box with a hole cut in the side. Seems to get them to start exploring and become interested in what is in the box!
