    It always fascinates me how Coco eats bell peppers.
    She's chowing down as I type this - she scrapes the fleshy pulp
    and drops all the skins to the ground.

    My last GW ate the skins as well.

    How about others? have you noticed their method of eating bell peppers?

    No macaws here but none of my guys eat the skins - they all do it the Coco way!

    Funny that you posted this, Just the other day I gave Simba some green bell pepper and he threw it down and looked at me like what else do you have :lol:Strange thing is most of the time he will eat anything you give him, maybe he just wanted something else at the time :)

    All of our birds eat their fruits and veggies by scraping the fleshy pulp and dropping the skins. Some don't like bell peppers and get rid of it all.

    Rawk (GW) dunks it a few times in his water (maybe to make sure its clean :) then he squeezes the liquid out of it into his beak. After he does that, he pulverizes it and drops it on the floor:rolleyes:

    Ollie (B&G) pitches them so I puree and mix them into his soft food.

    I put them in my chop so they really don't have much of a choice on how to eat them... Smurf is not a pepper eater, she has more of a sweet "tooth"...
