I know for a fact that guinea-pigs can eat corn HUSK but not the corn itself (not toxic but bad for them).

Can rabbits eat the husks or leaves of the corn plant?

Corn husks and leaves are usually laden with pesticides, unless you grow it yourself and know for sure, I would avoid it.

I am not really sure but I would venture to guess no. Another concern could be any of the leftover "silks" creating an intestinal blockage. I think just for that reason alone, I'd avoid them.

Otherwise, they would be okay, right?

Well like Beka said, the husks can also cause digestive issues as well as teeth problems should a strand get caught in their teeth.

Honestly, there are so.many.other options out there, I just would mess with it.
