Question Beans - Cooked or Raw?

I read somewhere that “certain sorts” of bean cannot be fed raw. But, annoyingly, the website did not say which “certain sorts” of bean these were.

So, my question is: what sorts of bean cannot be fed raw?

Also, can the following types of bean be fed raw:

- Fine bean
- Green bean
- Runner bean
- Sugarsnap peas (don’t know if this one counts as a bean per say)

Not entirely sure about runner beans tbh as I never use them but mine have all the others raw.

I used to feed runner bean raw until I read that it should be cooked. So although there did not seem to be a problem, I stopped raw and Mocho still loves them cooked. Like cypher I give sugarsnap raw like peas and mangetout. Beans Mocho turned his nose up at first so never bothered again!

Daisy and Cotton have been eating raw runner beans. Does it matter, does it make a difference if they're eating the pods or the green bits?
