Thread: Where to buy hay in bulk - online/farms? - Stockport area

    Default Where to buy hay in bulk - online/farms? - Stockport area

    Hi everyone,

    We have gone from 2 buns to 4 buns (very long story but we now have 2 amazing set ups with 2 bonded pairs)

    Now we have doubled we are noticing we are going through a lot of hay.

    We currently buy our hay from pets at home. We buy timothy hay, timothy hay with marigold, etc

    I am just wondering how people buy their hay with a lot of buns? is it cheaper and easier online somewhere? we also went to a local farm and bought a bag of hay for 1 and currently mixing that in but unsure if its safe?

    thanks for the help

    Kelly

    Hi, and welcome to the forum I buy hay by the bale for my rabbit and goats from a local equestrian feed merchant, it's good quality and my rabbits have always preferred it to the expensive pet shop stuff. Are your bunnies vaccinated for vhd, myxomatosis and the new vhd2 vaccine? as VHD2 is moreand more widespread and can be transmitted easily.

    My bunnies love timothyhay.co.uk as well - I also get them the oat hay. In some ways I think this is more about me than them as they loved their baled hay (4 a bale) I used to get them (I'm scared to go back, what would I do with it all if they are hay snobs now?). A while back I ran out & got them the timothy hay with dandelion? (2 for 1k I think) from B&M & although its very soft Mousey loves it & they all eat it. I'd try farm hay first & maybe some timothy oat as treat hay / topper

    Cheshire pet supplies do a hay bale. You can collect or they deliver to Stockport on a Friday. I haven't used them myself but someone recommended them to me a while back when I was looking for somewhere.

    I order a bale from Gjw titmuss/time for paws currently, and buy other hays from zooplus. Timothy hay I get from timothyhay.co.uk

    If you want a general meadow hay similar to that you get in petshops try Nature's Own hay. You buy in batches of 5 online but very good for litter trays as it's very soft.
