    I know red bell peppers are safe, not sure if the color would make a big difference or not...

    I'm pretty sure they are all safe :biggrin2:Then again, i learned recently that corn can cause probs so wait til someone else confirms it. I'm pretty sure I gave some but I can't remember :?

    Ok, thanks!

    Im going to go ahead and give them a little bot, because I saw green peppers are safe, and if Katie is saying red are, I dont see why yellow wouldnt be :biggrin2:

    I sometimes give my guys green pepper. Has anyone's bunniesever had any bad reactions or gas from it? I'm always a bit tentative to feed them it too much or too oftenin case they get gassy from it.

    I know they can really mess with some people's stomachs and give them gas. Most things that are gassy for humans end up being 10x gassier for bunnies in my limited scope...

    My guys get bell pepper scraps all the time. I use them for cooking people food all the time, so they get all the bits I don't use.

    I have yet to see a negative reaction, and all of my buns seem to really enjoy it.

    Two of mine have green and yellow peppers and they're fine, no gas. Although my two mini lops have never had gas from any veggies. I keep trying Leo with peppers but he refuses to eat them. I think it's just because they are quite a strong taste and he is still very young. I noticed that Starsky & Lacey's taste buds have adapted as they got older and they eat a lot more of a variety than they used to :)

    bo never has liked them. I think he's just super sensitive to smells and tastes. Of course he's the bunny who thinks strawberries are evil and thumps them into the mooshy mess that squeezes through the cage floor...... :?

    Otherwise, I'm sure they are safe - except for the gas thing. I really don't give them those sort of things anyhow.
