    So a grand total of ONE rabbit has entertained it Incidentally, the only one who even gave the normal timothyhay.co.uk a cursory sniff! I give up!

    Mine came this morning. They ignored it at first and just stuck with the Timothy. I rained down a thousand curses on their heads. However they started tucking into it later in the afternoon so I'm going to tentatively say they like it!

    Mine came yesterday, I didn’t give them any until this morning. They ignored it too at first, but they are both tucking into it now

    Mine came two days ago and was loved immediately. I am now wondering - should I give it together with their normal Timothy hay or could I give Orchard one day and Timothy the next?

    Glad that ignoring and then eating seems to be quite common, i’ll hide it in with their usual hay and see if anyone notices!

    Yes, me too otherwise the goats would have had a very expensive mopping up job to do (they eat all bunny cast offs gratefully )

    Hay is hay. Mix and match the different species as you like

    As Omi says, it doesn’t matter, personally I feed a few different types of hay separately in different feeding places, just for variety.

    Yea I agree

    Although personally I like to always make sure they have the hay they always have which is timothy here, and then other hays appear and disappear, just because I don't like changing diets much and also I always worry that the changing from one to another if they weren't so sure of one could lead to issues... But I'm probably being ott there so I always have timothy available and then feed a mix of others along side which changes
