I'd like to say that I love Oxbow items for my Guinea Pigs and buying hay is ALWAYS hit or miss, no matter where you buy. I buy fresh Orchard hay from a farm and wanted to add this Botanical Hay to what I feed my pigs every day. This hay was dry and has been in the bag for a while, however, my pigs went for it and especially loved the hay tips, and there were plenty of them. I judge by what THEY like, and they like most of it but left the dry Timothy stalks behind.
My rabbit only eats Oxbow food and orchard hay...I went out on a limb with the botanical blend and she stomps her foot at it! Refuses to eat it :( Back to orchard hay for her!
Oxbow is trusted to be the finest quality assuring me that I’m doing the best for my rabbits nutritional needs.
My rabbit loves this hay, but I'm unsure of its nutritional value. He will eat every handful I put in his litter box so he is definitely a BIG fan-- I have never had him run out of hay before trying this so clearly he likes it. I did buy this kind by accident, I originally intended to get timothy because I know that is the healthiest for him.
I wouldn’t recommend this item if your rabbits don’t like Timothy hay. My pet rabbit and my outdoor wild rabbits refused to eat it. I line the bottom of my pet rabbits litter box with it. So it won’t go to waste.
My guinea pigs love this hay. I give it to them as a treat for a variety.
I like to with the Timothy hay. Oxbow hay is the best brand and all I feed my buns!
I purchased this in the fall thinking that it would partly compensate for the greens shortage. While the package has a strong aroma, that is for the human buyer. Rabbits are not interested. The hay is so mature that my rabbit had no interest in it either. In the spring I dried a lot of dandelion and white clover and have been feeding that as a treat. That is what they really like.
Bought a few bags of Botanical Hay on Nov 21, 2022 and it was more brown and like Meadow/soft grass hay, not Timothy hay. Disappointing as my rabbits normally love this kind. But the last few bags, they just push around in their litter box. It's gotten so soft that I use it on the bottom of the litter box now. Hopefully the quality will be better soon... The positive...it still smells pretty. :-/
I like getting this hay variety as a treat for my 2 guinea pigs. The hay is very fragrant and typically loaded with seed pods (the fluffy pieces). My girls love it!
