    I got a bucket of sweet corn that had been thrown out by the market-I husked it and have the cobs- so what's the best way to turn them into bird food- do you dry it first, or just hang them up in the trees?

    If you pull the shucks back and hang them up in a tree or where ever you want them, they will dry out that way. That is if the birds don't eat the corn off the cob right away. Do you have any squirrels?
