I have worked and studied birds for 28+ years now, and have always given peppers to my parrot. I began to study chickens a year or so ago, and found an article that says that if you give hot peppers to the chicken, it will make the yolks darker. I have a friend who has a daughter who has chickens and she doesn't give her chickens peppers (she can't eat anything in the nightshade family). Then I read an article in my Chickens magazine saying that chickens should not be fed peppers because of the unknown amount of solanine in them. So, I am confused. I grew a lot of peppers for my bird, but she died last year. Some of the plants are still growing. When we get chickens, I would hate to not be able to use the peppers for them. But, I want to do what is best for all. What is best when it comes to chickens eating peppers?I could see not giving the chickens potatoes that are green or even tomato or pepper plants, but I was unaware that peppers are not good for chickens. So, what is correct concerning this? Thanks.
