Be that dustfreehay.co.uk?
I've just e-mailed them about postage to the Shetland Isles so here's hoping I get a response :)

The stuff they are currently on is ridiculously dusty, full of seeds which get caught up in their coats and just generally pants!

I've just got another bag of this for Rosie - she loves it :)

I think their website says despatch may be slightly slow this week due to staff holidays, but it does usually arrive fairly quickly :D

I'm waiting for some too and used the last of my stash today, so hope it comes soon!

How long does one bag of this hay last, generally?

At the moment I have Frankie and Jenny on a bag of vacuum packed meadow hay which they both like, but recently it's been quite dusty and bitty :( I'd like to order some of the dust free hay, but they eat so much I wonder if it'd just be really expensive... currently I spend about a fiver a week on hay.

I've ordered 10 bags which works out 4 per bag, usually 1 sac lasts me around 3 weeks for 4 bunnies...Since the bunnies have been having this hay their poo's have gone really big and healthy..

I've tried the meadow hay from the hayexperts and it's good, green, fresh and dust free too and it's cheaper than this

My buns love it too, its so nice. Its expensive though (but no where near as expensive as timothy hay). Thing is, the buns like it so much, they have turned into snobs and wont touch any other hay.... and i go through about a bag a week...

Do you get the same amount in, roughly how big is the bag?

Thanks

I was thinking of trying some of this for Oscar,I don't really want to get 10 bags all at once in case he won't eat it (fussy bunn):lol:
about how much do you get in one of the 7.99 bags? as it doesn't mention weight of the bags on the website
Thanks.


Ooops sorry just read the webpage *properly* each of them is just under 2kilos each:oops:

No my hay hasn't arrived :( I emailed them though and they have been away for a few days so theres a delay. I'll have to go and buy another bag from the petshop later on to tide me over until it does arrive..

It's this one, a 2kg bag which is the same as the dustfree hay.

I've tried the dust free one and it is very good but it's too expensive for me to afford everyday. I do keep getting thorns in my fingers from the hayexperts one though :roll:

Oh no what bad luck I've missed the delivery man by one minute :( .. I left at 15.55 to take my son to a party I was out 5 minutes I came straight back and the card said he'd tried to deliver at 15.56 :evil: :evil:
... The depot isnt that far away from me though so I'll go and collect it later...

I keep mine in the cupboard under the stairs. Everytime I go in to get the hoover out it smells like a meadow!!:lol:

SarahP

It has been put just inside my shed door, so I can't actually get in! Will have to get it all out bale by bale! :lol:

:D :D I'm happy I've now got my 10 bags of dustfree hay :D :D
I've also stopped off to a petshop and bought them a hay house aswell I now have very excited bunnies....

Mine arrived today too! I was at work though, so I need to collect it from the post office tomorrow morning. Really excited about trying it though (on the bunnies, not me, although if it smells as nice as everyone says it does... :lol: )

kayjay, what is the postage on the hay experts stuff? At 7.99, a single bale of dust free hay is expensive but ten at 39.99 (incl P&P) works out at just 3.99 a bale :D (cheaper than the 4.39 I pay at the moment for hay that isn't great and that I have to carry home up a massive hill :evil: :lol: )

Is there a minimum order charge at the hay experts? Or does anyone know what the delivery price is from there, I'm thinking I want the sample pack for my buns!

Morrigan1981
31-05-2007, 08:54 PM
The Hay Experts sample pack is P&P free! It's fab, great for finding out what your bunnies like and aren't so keen on :D

Mine love the brome hay (expensive tastes! :rolleyes: ))

Well, I managed to collect my hay from the PO yesterday but then took it to work and forgot it! :oops: I went back and got it this morning though and it's fab! I have two very impressed bunnies ;)

I'm definitely going to order a pack of ten bales now :D

I have a thorn from the hayexperts hay stuck in my thumb and I can't get it out :cry:

I'm going to buy some gardening gloves for getting the hay out :lol:

Morrigan1981
02-06-2007, 09:43 PM
I wear gardening gloves now! A little while ago I had a massive length of hay stuck in my index finger and it took me ages to ease it out :cry: It was about an inch long - I'm surprised I couldn't feel it in my elbow! :shock: :lol:

Oscarbunny: I searched for meadow hay on the Hay Experts the other day and managed to completely miss that one :oops:

I have ordered the sample pack from the hay experts, Just hope there is something in there Oscar likes.

We tried the sample pack from BunnyBasics and he would only eat the expensive hay out of it :rolleyes: fusspot:lol:

Beth, you got a real bargain there! :D
