    Question Corn husk and low calcium diet

    Hello everyone 👋🏻
    I was feeding my piggy with corn husks and meadow hay together last year. Now itís the corn season again, and I want to feed her with corn husks again, because she loves then so much. However, she is on a low calcium diet. I couldnít find the nutrition data of corn husks online.

    Can I feed her with them on a daily basis?
    I was drying the husks last year to feed her during the winter. Feeding piggies with dried corn husks is safe, right?

    They're fine to feed, fresh or dried, if you strip the outer husks off to get rid of the pesticides.

    To piggyback on your comment, you can also freeze them for later. My boys loved them!
