    Yes, but don't do it longer than needed.
    Corn isn't very high in protein and they need 18-20% to grow well.

    There are no easily available seeds that have more than 12% (oats). Soybean and peas have high protien and are mixed with the other things to bring up the percentage unless the producer uses some sort of meat or fish powder.
