    On the same topic, does anyone know why the RSPCA say that they are poisonous? What evidence do they have? I've always given my piggies masses of runner beans when they're in season, so feel fairly happy that they're okay, but then I started to worry...could they possibly be toxic in the long term?

    When mine eat them they only eat the outer shell and leave the little bean bits inside. When I first gave them runner beans I looked in their cage and thought they'd done really small white poos until i realised it was the inner beans :))

    Oh yes - I keep giving mine the Tesco finest ones I really buy for myself! They adore them. I can't give them too many though as they are expensive

    This exact thing happened to me too lol! They're pretty clever to be able to eat all around the bean middles haha, I'm always amazed :))
