Questions & Answers

3 Customer Questions

what is the difference between first cut and second cut
Answer by ChewyNov 11, 2021
First cut hay is the first harvest of the season that normally occurs in June. The stems and seed heads of the plant are generally larger in the first cutting. Second cut hay is the second harvest of the season that normally occurs in September or October. Stem size and seed head size is normally smaller in the 2nd cutting than the first cutting. Second cutting will normally have more plant leafs than the first cutting.

Is this hay quarantined indoors before shipping? If so, for how long?
Answer by ChewyOct 02, 2021
Hall's Hay quarantines all of their bulk hay products indoors for a minimum of 105 days before it is sliced into mini-bales.

what are the dimensions of the hay bale and the box that the bale comes in?
Answer by ChewyJun 25, 2021
The bales measure around 7 ½ inches x 7 ½ inches x 11 inches. They are packaged in a box that measures 8 inches x 8 inches x 12 inches.

Fresh and green hay

I was skeptical about this hay but it turned out to be great. The bay is fresh and green and it’s easy to pull out the bag. Sometimes hay is hard to pull out the bag but this was easy to access. I will buy this again for sure especially for the price and quality. So far my rabbit loves it.

Great hay for bunnies.

This is really nice hay. When you open the box, a wonderful smell of fresh-cut hay comes out. It is green and easy to pull apart, and has some stalks (good roughage for digestion) but also lots and lots of more leafy parts. My rabbits love it.

Great hay!

Guinea pig loves this hay! So far it has been easy to get out after cutting the packing straps; tight packed, good quality, and she loves it!

delish, great value

When my human cuts the bindings on a fresh hall's bale the hay is so packed in it literally jumps like popcorn in a pan with a great big pop! Can't get enough! One bale lasts me approximately 5 weeks. Perfect for morning constitutionals or scattering around the pen during evening zoomies! After all, a cute fluffy girl like me has to keep in shape somehow!

TOoo stick like

My guinea absolutely do not want to eat this and waste most of it. First order was fine and now they wont. I want to try again and get the orchard grass I really like this company.

Tired of buying horrible hay!

This used to be good hay but not anymore. The last several times it was nothing but mulch. Threw the boxes away. It's not Chewy's fault. It's the fault of these companies not caring about the quality of their products. Looks like the search for quality Timothy hay is on again.

Fantastic packaging

I mostly want to commend the way this is packaged for shipping. It's baled very tightly, and in the same manner as field hay that comes off in sheaves. This allows you to serve it without making a huge mess. Additionally, it comes with an oversized resealable plastic bag, so once you cut the baling it's easy to keep contained, fresh, and accessible. Seems silly to have to be happy about this, but it's signifigantly more functional than all the other brands I've tried, which is most, from 40 pound boxes to small emergency bags from local stores. As for the hay itself, it is fine. Can still smell a bit of the freshness, and the mix of stems to flower seems about average. Have had better and worse, but I suspect this is dependent on season and inventory levels, so I never judge fully from just one box. The piggies aren't complaining. This will be my new go to hay, largely based on the packaging, until they give me a reason to change.

My Guinea pigs won't eat it.

Maybe my pigs are just spoiled but they won't eat it. They just pull it out all over their cage.
