have you tried farm hay? I get a bale for 3 which lasts 2 months. I used to pay 40 a month on hay, until I tried farm hay.

We pay 6 a bale for hay from an equestrian shop down the road and it's quite nice. I use to have a horse so I know my hay. The last time we had hay from a farm it wasn't nice at all and mouldy inside.:(

I've just ordered some hay from the hay experts, my bun will only eat oat wheat and barley hay, it's 8.76 for 1.8kg, plus 4.49 postage :shock: I wish I could get it in bigger bags, and in a shop so I didn't have to pay postage. :roll:

Have you tried this place? They have an offer on Oat Hay at the moment:

http://www.simplyk9.co.uk/shop/index.php?cPath=3_88&main_page=product_info&products_id=415

I have never ordered from them, but they sell things for cats and dogs, too.

Oops, just saw that it is out of stock at the moment. So no good for a quick fix. :)

I still prefer to order from the hay experts, just wish they could source bigger bags! Maybe I'll drop Lisa a line...

If they're a bit fussy about their hay, try mixing the expensive little bags of fancy hay in with hay from a bale, I've 'tricked' lots of bunnies into eating "plain" hay with this method (including one I bunnysat with owners insistant that she never, ever ate hay!)

Madam only seems to like Oxbow and that's a tenner for a smallish bag:shock::shock:

Have you tried emailing Burns asking about bigger sizes as they were really helpful when I emailed over a query. I think the web address is www.burnspet.co.uk.

Was just about to say that 1. I've used them and they were really good. Had a little problem with my order as they have recently been upgrading their computers and my order went astray but as soon as I contacted them they were great and my order arrived within a couple of days :D

I wish the Oat,Wheat and Barley hay came in bigger bags, or a cardboard box like some of the Oxbow hays. I think Lisa has already tried to find out about it, not sure if there's a chance that they export such big boxes to Europe, though.

Absolutely! I just recieved an order, I had asked for a 3kg bag of SS but they were out of stock so sent me two 1.5kg bags instead, seems an obvious thing to do but how many companies would have just sent an email saying it was out of stock or even worse delayed the order and my buns would have gone hungry!

I never bother with 3 kgs, go straight for the 10 kg bags. :lol: I once got several smaller bags which added up to 10.5 kg, because the big bags were out of stock. Good for people like me who often order last minute. :oops:

Try to order several bags of hay, or some other things with it, then the postage gets spread out over several items.

have any in stock so they sent 4 of the 750g bags instead :D thank goodness otherwise my bunnies wouldnt have been happy :lol:

Ronnie will only eat the Burns green oat hay :roll: I buy 5 or 6 bags a month from Simon at SimplyK9, delivery is 5 and it only takes 2-3 days if that :) Its been out of stock for about a week so ive managed to source it locally, however shes charging me 6 a bag a time and from Simplyk9 its only about 3.30 :?

Expensive bunnies! :lol: I still use normal hay in his litter tray though xXx
