FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

I just bought a small animal or pet bird and want to know what the best cage or habitat is for it?

You must first decide how much space you have available for your small animal or pet bird. Once you have done this, we recommend looking at a few possible habitats you like and then checking the measurements of those you have selected. For example, if you choose a CritterTrail habitat you could then see the dimensions it provides in the item description. Then with a piece of large paper or a sheet of newspaper, cut out a section the same size as your habitat and place it in the area you will be keeping your new pet. Don’t forget to make sure you also have the right food for your new pet.

Grass Hays - What are the differences?

Grasses such as Timothy, Orchard, and Bermuda are herbages that naturally grow or are grown under cultivation and have jointed stems with narrow to wider leaves (blades) depending on the plant. Most grasses have a soft green to gray/brownish color depending on growing and harvesting conditions and storage of the product. Kaytee sources premium high quality Timothy, Orchard, and Bermuda grass hays in areas where moistures are controlled by irrigation and harvested under optimum conditions resulting in greener, richer quality grass hay products.Grasses are high in fiber and provide lower levels of protein and calcium compared to alfalfa. Grasses will have similar values of protein, fiber, and calcium depending on where they are grown and the harvesting conditions.Kaytee’s premium Timothy, Orchard, and Bermuda grasses aid in the natural digestive process of small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas; compliment their daily diets and provide a healthy variety to animals.Rabbits in particular have a digestive tract that is among the most delicate and sensitive of any animal and benefit from the long-strand fibers in grasses. They have a simple stomach like most pets, but are hindgut fermenters, with a specialized cecum that breaks down indigestible fiber into fatty acids, an important energy source. Gastrointestinal disease caused by low fiber intake is one of the most common feeding problems of house rabbits.Grasses are high in fiber, lower in protein and calcium compared to alfalfa, therefore grasses are a preferred choice for rabbits and other small animals to help prevent urinary and obesity problems. Alfalfa with higher protein and calcium is recommended for pregnant, lactating, or young, growing rabbits and animals.Feeding a variety of grasses stimulates the animal’s senses, provides the natural fiber needed to aid in digestion, and increases the animal’s foraging instinct. Grasses are also offered to other small mammals and birds as they will benefit from the fiber source, chewing material, and can be used as nesting material.

  • It Didn't Measure Up!

    By on

    This is the 3rd Timothy Hay purchase I've made from Chewy and it was very disappointing. The 1st shipment was outstanding with lots of buds and wonderfully tasty stems. My Guinea pig thoroughly enjoyed it. The 2nd shipment was okay, but not as good as the 1st. This 3rd shipment was not worthy of Chewy. Was it just a coincidence that each shipment after the 1st was less quality? I ordered the "wafer cut" because it fits into the hay rack so well. But this shipment was mostly very long straws (6-8 inches or more) and since they don't fit into the rack properly, they easily fall out of the rack all over the area. There is also a lot of brown strands in this bag. I will place one more order This is the 3rd Timothy Hay purchase I've made from Chewy and it was very disappointing.

I will place one more order with you sometime in the future (she is not ready for another bag yet), but if I find the quality of the next bag as poor as this one, it will be my last order with you. … more

  • Do not purchase 96oz bag

    By on

    Do not purchase the 96oz bag! The hay is very coarse, very dry and NOT the same quality as the hay in the 48oz bag. First purchased this size a few months ago to save money but my bunnies would not eat the hay so I switched back to the 48oz bag. Chewy shipped the 96oz bag with my most recent auto ship and once again bunnies won’t eat the hay. Very disappointed as it appears Chewy no longer carries the 48oz bag. I removed the product from my auto ship order and will purchase elsewhere.

  • What in the hay?!

    By on

    I received the huge box today! So far, the Kaytee hay cuts in this shipment seem normal compared to some of the experiences from previous reviewers. (A few individuals mentioned having received shreds rather than full stacks of hay.) My piggies also seem to love this hay as much as they did their Oxbow! They became extremely excited as soon as I opened the bag! Hopefully, the quality of the shipments will stay just as wonderful in future orders of this brand. #stayingoptomistic

  • Not whole pieces of hay- seems like leftover hay

    By on

    I ordered this product in the beginning was veey happy with it. The last couple of times was disappointing for a couple of reasons, the bag seemed less full and what was in there seemed more husband less full pieces of hay. Both my rabbits couldn't eat it and used it as bedding instead. I have resumed buying this at a local store, pricier, however, better quality. My rabbits are both over 10 years old, are inside rabbits and gave come expect higher quality than what is being offered. I did call into chewy to let a sales rep know and while friendly, didn't quite understand my concern. I hope Chewy rethi is the hay they are selling. All other items purchased have been what I expected

  • Felt a bit more like straw than hay.

    By on

    My girls are picky, so trying to find them a hay they'll actually eat is pretty difficult. They tolerate this one, but they don't really demolish it like they do Standlee's. The strands were pretty big and it felt more like straw for horses than actual grass hay. It's still a lot better than the mulch I got from Oxbow. However, there was virtually no dust which was pretty great. Hopefully the next bale stays consistent.

  • Not how it normally comes at Petsmart

    By on

    I normally buy Kaytee Timothy hay at Petsmart. I decided to try Chewy. With this hay, I bought adult rabbit pellets, a litter tray, bedding, and cat food. The rest came as expected. When I opened the bag of hay, the entire bag of hay seeemed as it was filled with the scraps left over.. kind of like the bottom of a bag of hay. I'll purchase one more time, hoping it's just this batch.

  • Great Hay!

    By on

    My guinea pig loves this hay. It always seems to be crunchy and smells "good." I have never purchased a bad bag. My only complaint is with the packaging. When I removed the hay from the Chewy box it was open because the bread tie wasn't strong enough to hold the excess plastic.

  • Prefer Oxbow over Kaytee (inconsistent quality)

    By on

    The last time I purchased this product at my local pet supply store, it came extremely loose and dusty. It caused my pigs to sneeze every time I would place in their cage. Not only that but I had to throw half the bag away because it was pure dust and would float in the air causing me to sneeze also. Oxbow has better overall quality and my pigs absolutely LOVE it better than this brand.

  • Such an Easy Item to have Shipped

    By on

    It seems like I am always running out of Timothy hay for my guinea pig, Sammy. And some of the smaller bags have thinner hay and the bottom is just dust. This has nice robust Timothy grass and should last me a long time. So easy to order through Chewy...if you're not on autoship, you're missing out!!!

  • Inconsistent Quality

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    The first few times I purchased this hay for my rabbits, I was extremely impressed by the quality. It seemed like tasty, nutritious first-cut hay. The bag I recently received, however, was of terrible quality. Ya know when you get down to the bottom of a bale of hay and what's left in the bottom is choppy little pieces of dried bits of hay that have broken apart? That is what this entire bag consists of. I feel bad giving it to my rabbits, they deserve better!
