Cut along the dotted line (start with #1 on the side of the package with the numbered bales) with a knife, scissor or sharp object. Gently pull on the cut hay bale until it separates. Remove the plastic packaging from the separated bale and discard. Arrange the hay in your pet’s cleaned cage. Store the remaining hay in a cool, dry place and repeat with the next numbered bale when you pet is ready for its next feeding. Always ensure that your pet has fresh, clean water. Always check with your veterinarian for your pet’s specific dietary needs.
My rabbit hates this product. She likes the Timothy version of this product but not the orchard. She loves orchard hay from various places. I don't know why this isn't something she likes.
Nice hay, very messy

I bought this orchard grass for my rabbit to see if he might want some variety from his beloved timothy hay. I broke off a block, placed it on the floor, and and waited for him to come and neatly pull out strands of hay and eat them. Instead, he clawed at it and threw the hay in every direction until the bale was completely dismantled. I think he also ate a few strands. I scooped the hay into a box so he could eat it in a contained way at his leisure. He would occasionally go in the box and dig around and eat a few strands, but after a while, he pooped and peed in the box so we threw it in the compost. Overall, this hay seems like a nice product that my rabbit thinks is a toy rather thanI bought this orchard grass for my rabbit to see if he might want some variety from his beloved timothy hay.

Not sure what to do with the three remaining blocks of grass lol.… more

I bought this from a pet store in hoped of compressed hay to limit the dust. NOPE. There was SO much dust. At least in a bag, the dust is at the bottom.

My two rabbits love this orchard grass! They have so much fun foraging through each "brick" I break off, and it keeps them happy and satisfied for hours. They even come running every time they hear the packaging-- it's safe to say this is their new favorite snack! I like that this product is not only engaging and fun for my rabbits, but it's also very nutritious and healthy for them as well. Overall it's a 10 from us!

Smelled nice, but a little dusty

I bought this to try for our guinea pigs as a treat. I don't know if its because of being cut into such small bales, but there is a lot of dust that goes along with this grass hay. I would open over a large container and loosen up the bale, so the dust and tiny pieces would fall off. It smelled nice, , the price was good, and the piggies seemed to like it okay. I'm not a fan of the dust, though. Still on a quest to find a good orchard grass without having to pay an arm and a leg.
Break-a-bale Orchard Grass

Our bunnies, guinea pigs, and chinchilla LOVE orchard grass as a change from their normal Timothy hay. These small break a part bales are wonderful for not getting too much and much less messy taking it out of the packaging. Highly recommend this as a treat for your pets.
The pigs gave it 2 thumbs up!

Our guinea pigs are super picky about their hay...they ONLY eat oxbow orchard grass...I’ve tried other brands and while they’ll eat it, they take their good ol’ time. I saw this and thought it would be worth a shot...it’s a little more expensive in the long run but if they eat it and it’s not as messy, it may be worth it! I opened the package and right away I could smell the sweet hay smell! I put it in their cage and they WENT NUTS for it! They loved it! I’ve already increased my quantity on my autoship because this will definitely be a repeat buy!!
