This is the second time I received poor quality hay from oxbow. I have 10 rescued rabbits that will not eat this. The Timothy Hay is either old or cut from the edge of the field. I might as well purchase straw which like this Timothy hay delivered has NO nutritional value. I ordered a different brand from chewy that was lush and green. I believe this huge box could possibly sit on the shelf maybe a little longer than it should.
Nice hay very green not much dust that I have seen... But I will not be ordering it again. I love Oxbow products but this is 1st cut hay.. Nothing wrong with it. My piggy just don't like it. He wants 3rd cut hay. But if yours lil pet likes 1st cut I would recommend it.
I had bought in the past received good boxes then got a dusty box, then it was out of stock so I ordered different brands - received not good hay. But this box my pigs LOVE - smells great - looks great very happy with this box !!
My chinchillas all like it and eat it well. Once in a while, the hay will not be quite as fresh as it should be when we get it. Otherwise it’s usually good. The ziplock top helps to keep it fresher longer after opening.
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.
My rabbits will only eat about 50% of this mixture and leave the more straw like hay uneaten. The same thing happened with a previous order six months ago and I thought it was just the batch but I am afraid my rabbits reject much of this batch as well. I have not had such trouble with other timothy hay providers.
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
Tho I know it is not all handpicked given the size. This last order was more than half unusable. It was stringy and coarse my buns wouldn’t touch it. Also found some pieces of blue plastic within the bag :(
I've fed this brand of Timothy hay to my 4 Guinea pigs for over 6 years. I occasionally add in the different flavors as a treat.
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.
