I just stopped at Ralph's ( a california based grocery chain) and asked for corn husks, they gave me a very big box of them (about 25 lbs). The manager said they save them for people making Tamales.

Is there a limit on how many husks you should feed your pigs, or are they pretty much unlimited like lettuce?

Just to update, my efficient little food-recyclers even eat the cob. I gave them a chunk cut in 2 (to prevent bickering) when I went to bed last night and there was no trace of it this morning.

Anyone know the Ca:P ratio for corn husks (and corn silk)?

According to guineapigcages.com, the Ca:P-ratio for Corn is 0.3:1, it also says "Husk/silk can be fed daily". I know that's not exactly what you wanted to know, but it's the only thing I found.

Here's the link: http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/diet-nutrition/22156-rea ... ts-list.html
