    Default Hay-and-Straw.co.uk

    Was about to order a new 10 kg bag from timothyhay.co.uk only to see that the quality is less due to the better stuff running out!

    I prefer to pay more for quality so I was wondering if anyone orders from hayandstraw.co.uk and what kind of hay their buns prefer from there?

    My buns don't like it but I think the Ings hay always goes down well.
    I ordered a bag of Timothy & Rye from hay-and-straw and I really didn't like it. Neither did my buns. It was yellowy in colour and none of my 4 rabbits would touch it!

    I usually order the Ings hay and that's always gone down well with my buns. I used to get the timothy and rye as well but my buns weren't that bothered about it so I stopped ordering it.

    How do you know the quality has gone down before you ordered?

    There is a note to explain on their website.

    I'm wondering what to do as I need to order some more soon. My rabbits have been enjoying the "good quality" timothy and rye from the timothyhay.co.uk. Since changing to this though, my ezcema has flared up really badly and I'm wondering if the hay is the cause. I remember others saying that this hay has caused allergic reactions. So will the 2nd grade cause just as bad a reaction and how much more inferior is it?

    You'd think it would be an easy decision about what hay to buy!

    Timothyhay.co.uk has had 'lesser quality' hay before and I ordered it anyway. Personally I couldn't tell the difference and it was still very good hay

    Oh thank you Omi. Just been back to their website and seen that. It wasn't there when I ordered, and I paid a bit more for mine, so hopefully it's the good stuff (same as you sent me, Roxy)

    Difficult to know what to do .....

    I bit the bullet and ordered from them anyway, Binky will know if I've got different hay so I'm hoping the difference is barely noticeable! Fingers crossed it's still good stuff like yours was Roxy

    I really like the ings hay, it's quite a mixture and there's a lot of green strands which the rabbits like. The strands are very long and quite thin, I wouldn't say it's the softest hay I've felt but it's definitely not stalky so it depends on the rabbits preference
