I'd like to know if rabbits can have corn husks like guinea pigs can?
Hi- Can my bunnies eat the green "husk" leaf material off of corn on the cob? Or is it bad for them? Thanks!!!! Answer - Dear Theresa, I would not give them corn husks for two reasons. First, they are very stringy, and hard to chew. Since I know of bunnies who have gotten the strings of celery caught on their teeth and caused serious problems, I would think the same thing might happen with corn husks. Second, corn husks, unless they're from organically grown corn, are loaded with pesticides. I just wouldn't feed them to my bunnies when there are so many other good things to feed them: www.bio.miami.edu/hare/diet.html Hope this helps! Dana
