rabbits can eat corn plants with no problems, and I know of people who feed dry corn stalks to their rabbits.
YES!!! I grew Painted Mountain Corn this summer, since @dlynn mentioned growing it. The rabbits absolutely LOVE the stalks both green and dried. It’s like candy to them. I didn’t get enough dried in time to feed it in their normal ration, but enough to treat them with it.
I’ll have to pull up some of the data I found about this corn’s starch and fiber content in the stalks vs other corns. The stalks are highly palatable and more easily digested than lots of other corn varieties as a food source for animals. I’m very excited about it’s use for rabbits.
