Bird Snipped Top From Pepper Plant

Will my bell pepper plants still produce fruit if a bird snipped the tops off? The plants haven't flowered yet and still have some leaves.

If it still has at least one set of true leaves, it should regrow. You will notice that it will grow bushier as a result. Some people actually deliberately pinch the tops of their peppers to make this happen.
