I don't see anything wrong with green :mrgreen: bell peppers or sweet peppers.....just not HOT :oops: peppers. It's a veggie, and I have yet to hear of any problems with them. I have picky hedgies, so I have not tried peppers with mine, but my rats used to love them and our guinea pig also likes to eat them.

If I am having yellow, orange or red peppers in a stir fry I will chop a couple of little cubes up raw and that will become part of Priscilla's meal for the night. They're always gone. But I would never chance feeding hot peppers!

Hedgies can eat peppers, it's if hedgies should eat peppers that's the question. I was thinking more the hot peppers, as that is what came to mind. (I don't eat peppers...) If green peppers are safe (regardless of nutritional value, which I have no clue of) then by all means, go ahead and feed them.

What I was referring to before was the hot peppers, which is why I advised not to feed them.
