    You can. They will eat it and just about anything else. Not sure if it would have much nutritional value but it won't hurt them

    Mine won't eat it raw but will if it's been cooked and softened.

    I chop it up in small (1/4") pieces so strings won't cause a problem.
    Agrees, not much nutrition.....mostly water.
