Jalapeņo Pepper Question

Do I need to remove the seeds like I do in fruits? I purchased some Thai hot peppers today for the birds. Some of them like the dried version that comes in some bird mixes and I noticed that those still contain seeds, what about fresh?

Re: Jalapeņo Pepper Question

Pepper seeds are safe to feed. Just be careful after your bird eats them...the hot doesn't affect birds but you will get the full effect of that hot pepper if your bird tries to give you a kiss! My sun conure did that to me one time

Re: Jalapeņo Pepper Question

My Grey eats them whole; it's his favorite treat. My lovebird, pecks the seeds out of the pepper and eats them. Parrots seem immune to the whole capsaicin burn. Just be careful of the oil left on their beaks and feet. I forget and mine burn me all the time with fiery kisses after eating peppers.

Re: Jalapeņo Pepper Question

Haha, whole peppers give Kiss Kiss an entirely new meaning.

My birds like whole peppers, they enjoy taking them apart. Peppers are perfect for skewer treats too.

Re: Jalapeņo Pepper Question

Don't accidentally touch anywhere near your face or eyes until you wash that juice off your hands thoroughly, and if any get under your fingernails. Otherwise you'll be in for a pretty painful experience. In fact, I don't feed peppers anymore that are too hot because I don't even trust myself as silly as that is.

Re: Jalapeņo Pepper Question

I have fallen victim to the hot pepper kiss. I totally forgot chili had jalapeņos and kissed her after she was done eating---- you better believe I'll never forget again!!!

I'm going to wear rubber gloves while handling them. I've used them in Mexican salads so I know how painful they can be!

If you have to 'suit up' for it, it's not worth it LOL . I stick to bell and Poblano (I see them called Pasilla? They must look similar). They love those, especially red bell pepper.

Re: Jalapeņo Pepper Question

I slice them up and put the seeds and the rest of the pepper all in one of Duke's dishes and he eats it all. He actually goes for the seeds first. So yes, the seeds are perfectly fine for your bird.
