Well mine do anyway!
I have always eaten the corn silk fresh from all the cobs I grew.
It is a fine source of natural antibiotic when consumed straight from the fresh picked organic cob.
I pull the husk back a bit, loosen & pull out the tuft of silk & eat, then refit the husk leaves back over the cob for storage & cooking.
So I was munching my way through the silks of 6 cobs when cluckles appeared & proceeded to jump up at the cob I had in my hand.
I thought it must have been the cob they were after but when I put it down to their level they jostled each other for the silks. So I begrudgingly scattered that tuft of silk onto the ground where upon they dove over & under each other to get every last morsel of it.
I wonder if maybe they were self medicating? How would they know about the qualities of corn silk?
But then again, how does any animal know what to eat to self medicate?
They never fail to amaze me with their food preferences.
