Could anyone who has received the 50lb box tell me the dimensions or about how big the box is? We live in a small space and I want to make sure I can store it before ordering - thank you!
Answer by BunLoverMar 08, 2023
I measured it out and it’s 24 L x 18 W x 24 H. It’s very large and honestly I recommend unless you like the smell of hay, to get multiple extra large storage containers

How many ounces would the 50 lb bag be? And how long is the shelf life on the 50 lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJan 24, 2018
The 50 pound bag is equivalent to 800 ounces. If stored properly in a cool dark place with good ventilation, the Timothy Hay Food may keep for 6 months or longer.

is this hay dust extracted
Answer by ChewyNov 01, 2019
This hay has been extracted to reduces fine dust particles

What cut hay is this?
Answer by ChewySep 20, 2022
Oxbow uses both first and second cutting hay. First cutting hay typically has more stems with larger seed heads. The second cutting is more likely to be leafier and softer with more brown leaves and smaller seed heads. Rather than sell hay by cutting, Oxbow strives to harvest all hay early in its growth cycle – when specific product attributes are most likely to meet the needs and preferences of most small herbivores.

Product DIFFERS based on weight

ZERO stars for the 25 lb bag, 5 stars for smaller bags. WHY??? The product description does not state the difference that exists, The 25 lb bag has UNCUT hay whereas the 9 lb bag contains CUT hay. I ordered the 25 lb bag of hay without knowing or noticing this, and my rabbit stopped eating hay. When I next ordered hay, the 25 lb bag was not available so I ordered the 9 pound bag. Suddenly my rabbit started eating hay again and her gut got better and I could stop taking her to the vet. When I made my next order the 25 pound bag was available so I ordered it. As soon as I opened the plastic bag I realized the difference in the hay. Sofia with Chewy said she would reach out to have the product description updated so customers are aware of this difference. Any good rabbit owner knows that bunnies do not like change. After months of bad gut health, vet visits and supplements I now know to get the 9 lb bags to have a healthy bunny.

It’s iffy at best. First two boxes were great last two were literally just dust lol definitely no quality control. Oxbow definitely doesn’t care whether it’s good hay or not. I even found clumps of dirt in it. As if it was added to make it weigh more. Lots of brown dry hay as well. What is edible I have to de dust myself so my Guinea pigs don’t sick. At the cost of getting dust and dirt everywhere on my things. It’s a pain but we do what we do for our fur babies

I am not sure what is happening with Oxbow

We have purchased the 25lb or 50lb box of Timothy Hay for years for our guinea pigs. This last year it is really hit or miss what we get. The first box we got that was bad quality I chalked up to a fluke. The next box was great. However I just received another bad box. They hay is very tough and not really editable or even soft enough for bedding. I hate to say it, but at this cost and with no way of knowing what you are getting, I would skip this product.

Oxbow hay has gone downhill the last couple of years. I was ordering 50 lb boxes twice a month for my bunnies and guinea pigs but was throwing more out than using any. Plus I was finding small plastic pieces and weeds with what appeared to be thorns on them. Very dangerous!! I have since switched brands and have no problems with dangerous objects in the hay for my fur babies. I do not recommend this product.

Bulk (50 lb) bad quality hay

I have bought Oxbow multiple times in the 9 lb box to the 25 lb and never have I had an issue. Recently I bought the bulk 50 lb box and the hay is terrible. More like a 1st cut of hay than a 2nd... IDK my guinea pigs seem to waste more than they are eating :(

The quality of the hay in my last box was like dry sticks. My girls don't eat it and I end up sweeping it up and throwing it away. I think when they started offering a premium or top quality hay. They box up the rest and this is what we get. I'm looking for a company that actually sells what the promote and that is quality.

50lb box - perfect for 6 guinea pigs!

I've been feeding my guinea pigs Oxbow hay ever since I first got them, and while sometimes the hay quality can vary, I've been extremely pleased with the 50lb box, every time. It lasts a long time especially considering I have 6 guinea pigs, I can't keep wasting money going through a small bag every few days! This is the best bang for my buck. Not to mention, it smells amazing!

This hay is basically just mulched up grass. The last 4 or 5 bags I have received have all been very bad quality, which is abummer because I have 2 bunnies who go through a lot of hay and I am constantly purchasing it.. too bad the quality sucks.

Oxbow hay has gone downhill

Oxbow, I understand that I will have to sort through the hay in a bulk box. However, for the exorbitant price, I don't expect that I'll have to discard 2/3 of it. Most of your hay has been either brown and dead or straight up hay dust. I've been buying your hay for 10 years but this last year or so, it's been a joke...one that comes with an increased price tag.

Stick to the smaller bag

Our pigs eat so much hay, I decided to get the large 9lb box. It is not the same quality as the smaller size bag. This is all broken and mostly tiny pieces. We are wasting a lot for this reason. Not sure if it’s just the packaging process or how compacted it has to be to get 9lbs in, but it’s not great. I expect better from Oxbow.
