Can Chickens Eat Green Bell Peppers?

Question of the Day: Can chickens eat green bell peppers?

Quick Answer: Yes, chickens can eat green bell peppers.

Many people believe that you shouldn’t give green bell peppers to chickens because they contain solanine. This is a highly toxic substance common to all members of the nightshade family.

In the case of green bell peppers, all of their solanine content is in the plant’s leaves, stems, and flowers. There is none in the fruits or seeds.
