    Just to get back to the corn on the cob, I gave my bunnies some a while ago and one of them had a really upset tummy! I had to clean the whole room and the poor bunny needed a good bott bath! So needless to say I've avoided feeding it since!

    I have only ever fed corn once. None of them liked it anyway. It is naturally high in sugar which has more to do with my decision on not feeding it. Who says it causes blockages and how many rabbits has it happened too, anyone know?????

    says that dried corn causes impaction and fresh corn is too high in sugar.
    http://www.houserabbit.co.uk/rwf/articles/feeding.htm hints that it might cause a problem.

    Quite a few people against it in alt.pets.rabbits maybe its an urban myth but its a more American group and corn is a more popular food there.
