Corn On The Cob


Recommended Posts

I did check the search feature on the forum before asking. With corn on the cob for budgie, do you give your birds the corn, raw or boiled?

Raw...no need to cook as the vitamins are more useful when the vegies are raw. Serve whole or serve corn kernels. You can buy frozen corn and defrost too. :)

Thanks Kaz. I'm trying to get as much fresh corn to feed chicken-hawk before winter hit and all the fresh fruits and veggie prices take a huge price hike.

Buy the loose corn kernels in the freezer section of your supermarket then........even the plain homebrand ones are okay :)

I managed to find some corn on the cob over the week end. First time I gave him some on the ledge I rigged up, he ended up tossing the cut up cob on the bottom of the cage. Second piece I used a close pin I use for millet, and he ate it. This time I used a bamboo skewer and he he trying to figure out how to eat the corn with out it rolling, pictures following.

I think he is starting to figure out how to eat the corn with out it rolling about.

 

Edit: I used the wrong code when posting the pics.

Corn is one of the most ‘famous’ cereal grains across the globe. Grown in countless countries worldwide, corn also come in varieties. Ultimately, sweet corn on cob is as healthy as a cereal grain and its rich in fibre, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.  Corn contains approximately 96 calories which is perfect for low calorie diets as well!
