Here is a related story. Might be the origin of what your looking for:

A man was walking along a narrow path when he saw lots of birds throwing a big party with some big yellowish, golden corn. He asked if he could have a bite.

"Yum, that's good! Can I have some for my family?" he asked.

"Sure!" replied the birds.

So he took home one cob of corn for each family member. The family had it for supper. "Yum! That was good! What is it?" they asked.

"IT IS CORN!" replied the husband.

"Get some more", cried everyone.

"Okay!" said the man.

That night the husband went and stole all the corn! The birds came back that morning just as crabby as a crabapple.
They started yelling and screaming, "Where's our corn?" They flew over to the Maya man's village and knocked on his door.
"Where's our corn?" demanded the birds.
The family had kernels of corn all over their faces but they said, "We still have some left. Do you want it?"

"No, no! Wait a second!" commanded the birds.

"If you have four kernels of corn, you give one to the birds, and one to the animals and you can have two for yourself.
"One of your kernels is to eat and one is to plant."

"Okay, okay, OKAY!" said the man.
