I dice (both medium [1st segment of thumb] and small [1st segment of pinky] sized) 1 1/2 green peppers, 1/2 yellow pepper, 1/2 orange pepper, and 1/2 small red pepper. Then I just mix it all up and put them in a bag. When I feed them, I merely give my girls a handful of pepper pieces.

I know that you aren't supposed to feed red peppers daily, but is this combination alright? In each handful, there are typically only 0 to 3 pieces of red pepper. Or is this still too much sugar?

I don't feed them any fruits often (mainly because they don't really seem to enjoy fruits).

They really need leafy greens in their diet as well.

I wouldn't worry about the color of the peppers so much. But is that all the vegetables you give them?

No. That's not all they get. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

They definitely get other veggies as well (e.g. green lettuce, baby carrots, cherry tomatos, parsley, etc). I was just worried about the red peppers in the mix since it contains more sugar than the other bell peppers. Then again, that's why the bell peppers are in a ratio of 3:2:1. But, I just wanted to make sure that it's okay to techincally feed them red bell peppers everyday.

If you are doing the leafy greens then Yes it is fine to mix your peppers.
