Can Guinea Pigs Eat Corn on the Cob?

Today the humans decided to give is corn! Guinea pigs can eat corn, but only 1-2 times per week, although the corn husks and silks can be fed daily. You should not give us COOKED corn, though. Only raw. We can't digested cooked food. We guinea pigs love to eat corn, and we actually prefer the husks and silk. In fact, our favorite part is the husks, followed by the silk, followed by the corn. We aren't really interested in eating the cob, though.
One thing about the husks: please throw out the outer most husks and only feed us the leaves of the husk that are closest to the corn. This cuts down on the danger of pesticides, and it is safer for us overall.
 The three edible parts of the corn.
We ate the husks first, followed by the yummy corn silk.

Lola and I fought over the corn. You can hear her whining about it in the video above when I stole it back from her. I think you humans are crazy for not wanting to eat the husks and silk. Don't you realize what you're missing? We give corn 5/5 stars!
