    Default oat hay comparison

    eric LOVES burns green oat hay but half of the bag is just bits so all i can use it for is scattering in the base of his litter tray.

    searching for something similar that may be longer stalks all the way through the pack, i see that there is also an oxbow oat hay.

    does anyone use the oxbow one and does it go down well with your buns (is it much different to the burns one?).

    but it's no use going back to yesterday,
    because i was a different person then

    I havent tried Burns hay (because I've never seen it for sale anywhere to try it ) but Oxbow's Oat Hay is the favourite choice for my two buns, they go absolutely nuts for it especially the stalks that have the oat seeds on them! But at 4.80 for a small bag, it's too expensive to feed freely unless I want to be bankrupt so I only put a good handful on top of their pile of field hay

    There is usually a bit of dust at the bottom of the bag, but it's defintily mostly full of stalky long edible bits.
    Sorry for any typos!

    thanks i'll still have to buy it online but i thought i'd check if it was worth it (eric & esme don't get that scattered so freely either - i reckon they'd go off it if they had too much of it)

    Hmm. All our buns have the burns green oat hay, but ronnie and lola especially love it. When i tried them on the oxbow oat hay they wouldnt eat it However, the do eat the oxbow western timothy as an alternative if they have to after protest for a day or 2

    I emailed them and got two bags free basically saying I didnt want to pay postage by sending my bags back.
