    Default Where Do You Get Your Hay From?

    I get a pack of 3 x 1kg Burgess Excel Marigold Hay from Amazon for 14 for 3 bags, plus Pillow Wad Meadow Hay (3 bags again which are 2.25kg each), once again usually around 14 for 3 bags on Amazon.

    As I have Amazon Prime this is quick and convenient for me, but is it good value? My buns love both kinds and it lasts quite a long time for two rabbits

    Just wondering where everyone else gets their hay?

    I get Superhay from our local farm shop and Timothy hay from timothyhay.co.uk. One very soft and the other very stalky. I mix them up (the Timothy always gets eaten first)

    Remembering Skye, Woody, Maisie-pig and Marley-pig. Always in our hearts and very much missed

    I mainly use Ings hay by the bale (9.5kg) from hay&straw.co.uk (18 delivered) but also Readigrass (13) & Timothy readigrass & Green oat grass from Friendly Estates (equibox.co.uk), Burgess excel long stem feeding hay (time for paws) & various Burgess hays (dandelion & marigold, chamomile, barn dried) from PetPlanet.

    The bag of Ings I got this week is super green, super long, very very nice. It's the kind guinea pigs enjoy burrowing thorough Would recommend.

    Mainly timothyhay.co.uk with smaller bags of readigrass, timothy readigrass, b&m dandelion & marigold and whatever else I pick up to mix in with it. I have about 3/4 of a bale of farm hay which my guys won’t eat and even my current foster won’t eat. That’s what I always got before I tried timothyhay.co.uk and now they are too fussy to go back to it

    This for me too. I keep mine in a shed. I think I pay about the same too.

    I ordered from Spenser from The Hay Experts. I'll still use them for forage but Bertie bunny is happy to devour cheap supermarket hay and Wilko's Timothy hay.

    I buy Ings hay from https://www.hay-and-straw.co.uk/ . It's got a mix of different grasses in and it's a lot greener and fresh smelling than most hay. Right now I struggle to find room to store the 9kg bale, but once I move house I'll probably start buying farm bales and a 15kg readigrass bale and mixing the two together because I think it'll work out cheaper

    Burgess hay is lovely, but also incredibly expensive for the size. It used to be the only hay I gave my two boys, but as they grew they started getting through 5 bags a week I think because that hay is so finely chopped it easily fell out of the hay rack and they just ended up sitting and weeing on a lot of it. With the Ings hay they don't waste anywhere near as much so 5kg of Ings lasts me twice as long as 5kg of burgess hay did
