    Two weeks is not a very long time for a snake to go without eating; even babies will be fine. Just keep offering food every few days (make sure you leave them alone) and they will probably eat.

    Agreed. 2 weeks is nothing for a snake. Thats way too soon to even be considering forcefeeding.
    Just leave the snake be and don't mess with it unless necessary.

    Do you know how long ago it shed? It may be impending and that will make them go off feed.
