    Wish I could get some decent hay last to big bags have been a right mixture of good and bad, and it's been going off quick. Found one bag the other day that was so soggy, I had to chuck it away, what a waste

    Think I'll have to do another big order from hay experts, I get my treat hays from there so I'll see what they've got in the way of 'normal' hay

    Abi.. have you ever been to a farm to get a bale? I got one recently at the one in Taverham.. near to the garden centre, its ok and they eat it but its not as nice as it was earlier in the year. A bale used to be 2.50 but now its 3 which is still cheap, but the man there told me they only got about a third as much as they usually do due to all the rain Not sure what im gonna do when they run out. The other place i used to get hay from is the Giant Pet Store near the airport, or the one where Cheryl is in Hellesdon in the little shopping centre, although i cant remember what type of hay they sell now. I'll be going to the giant petstore tomorrow so i'll see what hay they have now.
    Good luck! Let me know if you find some decent stuff i might be hunting as well soon!

    im afraid this wont be any use to you - but bizarrely i got a fantastic bale of hay from our local supplies place a couple of weeks ago. it was much better quality than the last bale i got. i was actually warned by them after all the floods that they couldnt guarantee any nice stuff for a while but they must have got it from somewhere. and it was only 4.

    still ive ordered 50 worth of stuff off BB today for the spoilt bunsters.

    Just been to Giant PetStore.. they dont have the one you were after. They have Supa meadow hay and Canac hay. They didnt even have their own bales which ive seen there before.
    I went in to get a bag of their dried grass but the area was empty.. asked a member of staff and he came back with a HUGE bag of Just Grass.. i think its gonna last me a year!

    If you only ordered a single bag then Royal Mail delivers. Multiple bags are sent by courier so should arrive within days, maybe they have got lost en route?

    yeah i think thats the place..it is where i got the big bale from last time. butt i think i got it at the wrong time or something as t was just full of seeds and poor duchess got a huge one stuck in her eye

    i am addicted to that shop it looks like it isnt going to have much and then you go inside and it had loads of doggy stuff

    havent been to the GPS for ages...might have to go on a spending spree there! although last time i went i stood by the rat cage for 15 minutes trying to look interewsted enough for a member of staff to maybe ask if i wanted a cuddle with the ratties but no one asked
