    Default home dried hay

    it smells beautiful, looks lovely but since the bunnies are likely to be less than enthused I thought I'd share my 'achievement' here

    It does look lovely. Based on our experience here though, I think you're probably right that the bunnies might not be enthusiastic. It might have something to do with the fact that they seem to prefer short cut pieces of grass, rather than long strands with seedheads. But that doesn't explain their reaction to commercially produced hay with long strands and seedheads. I don't know

    Thank You. I've weighed 200g out last night & put it in J&B's rack & will weigh again after 24 hours. i bet they'll just eat the commercial timothy thats in the tray. mouse has had a few tries (she doesn't eat much of any hay) & Boobly ate about 80% of a small handful I hand fed her. Joey doesn't seem keen as yet. I need to work out if its worth drying more - I did enjoy it though

    That looks amazing! It must have taken quite a bit of effort.

    Mine are hay snobs. Yesterday I started a new bag and it is heavier strands and they ate less.
    When I bought larger boxes of same stuff I had feed store,they closed, open box so I could look at it and smell it.

    I would definitely choose the wrong hay for mine, whenever I get some hay I think looks really good the bunnies are like meh, wheres the old brown timothy hay from 2018 ?
