    Default Burns v Oxbow Oat Hay?

    Is there much difference?

    Im trying my two on a sample of the Oxbow Oat Hay and Indy STILL isnt fussed. Ive tried sprinkling some readigrass over it to encourage him but he'd rather just hoover that up from around the hay

    Hmph!!

    I feel your stress my Thumper will not eat hay no matter what I decorate it in I've posted a thread recently "just to be sure" and I explain it a little in there, but it pretty much says that if they wont touch hay, try grass. You probably already know Readigrass contains calcium so can't be the main food source but I use Orchard Grass by Oxbow with small quantities of readigrass (like you mentioned). Orchard Grass can be fed in unlimited quantities and is as good as hay Thumper loves it, which is reassuring to see for once lol. Give it a shot. If he likes it they sell massive bags. The biggest weighing 22KG and costing around 60. Expensive, but atleast you know he's happy and healthy

    I agree with this, you could get a sample of Orchard Grass off animal magic for 50p, and if Indy likes it (which he probably will, Oscar goes mad for it!) you can get the big bags! Plus it is as good for rabbits as normal hay, and can be fed freely

    it is pretty expensive. I use meadow hay as the main and oat hay as the "side dish"
