Otherwise known as sweet corn, sugar corn, or pole corn, fresh corn is a variety of maize that has a high sugar content.
It is mostly eaten boiled, but can also be baked or fried and is used in various culinary dishes around the world.
So can rabbits eat fresh corn on the cob at all, and if they can how much of them can be eaten?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data and find out more about them. In particular, their acidic, phosphorus, sugar, fat, fiber, and water content is of interest as far as rabbits are concerned.
As you can see corn on the cob contains quite a lot of water, acidic content, as well as sugar.
This means that unfortunately rabbits cant eat fresh corn at all.
They are just too sugary and gassy for rabbits to handle.
So unfortunately, they are a food to avoid giving to rabbits and look to feed them another type of veggie.
