    Default Good hay

    Iím on the hunt for some really good hay. Angus is a good hay eater, Beans is rubbish and the new rabbit is eating a bit but Iíd like her to eat more especially as sheís a nethie so prone to teeth problems. Has anyone tried any hay with their bunnies that theyíve absolutely loved? I bought some readigrass and they loved it but Iíve just bought another bag and itís quite brown and damp and the bunnies donít like it, itís compeletly different to the last bag I bought.

    Timothyhay.co.uk - the Timothy hay and oat hay big hits here

    Hayandstraw.co.uk - ings hay also a favourite here

    Typed them from memory so not sure if the hay and straw has dashes or not Google it, it'll come up

    Those 3 hays are what I feed everyday but I do buy some of those small expensive bags of hay sometimes to mix it up x

    I also buy these three. I use the timothy hay mainly and get the other two occasionally. I think you will find, like the Readigrass, that the hay will vary over time. The first cut of the timothy hay for instance was stalkier than the second, which is softer. I also feed a large amount of freshly cut grass every day when we have it.

    The hay experts sample pack is a good way of letting bunnies try out hay and find out favourites, Frosty likes Burns green oat hay, oxbow orchard grass and Timothy hay best.

    It's just a hay that hay and straw sell - what do you mean by stalky? It's quite soft if that helps? My buns go mad for it x

    Yes, but since moving him onto those from the baled meadow hay he used to like, thereís hardly any waste hay and straw send out samples too, but Frosty didnít like any of them!

    I'm having a bit of a nightmare with hay here too. I've bought so many different bags and still struggling, (so far they only demolished the alfalfa - when they were babies). Other bags barely get touched it's costing me a small fortune! I have just ordered the sample packs from hay and straw and hayexperts but how can I judge how much they like it, do you just put a handful down of each and see which one they go to or do them separately and see how much of each one they eat?
