Questions & Answers

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 ChewyDec 28, 2017
The 50 pound bag measures approximately 18.1 inches long x 24.5 inches wide x 19 inches high.

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 the stacked hay as beneficial as the loose hay, like for their teeth because hay helps to keep their teeth down,
Answer by ChewyOct 10, 2017
The stacked hay provides the same benefits without the scatter of loose hay.

Does this come in 1 large bag or separate bags?
Answer by ChewyMay 18, 2018
The Oxbow Western Timothy Hay Small Animal Food will come in 1 bag.

(a bit sad to say) It's better than Small Pet Select.

I had been buying 2nd cutting and 3rd cutting Timothy hay from Small Pet Select for about 10 years. SPS is an extremely nice group to work with and I was very "brand loyal." But their 3rd cutting hay started getting increasingly brown and I decided to buy 2nd cutting only. Then, 2nd cut also started looking less green, more brown and more dusty. Plus, without any change in price, a SPS 60 lb. box became a 50 lb. box and then a 40 lb. box. At that point, I decided (reluctantly) to try this new brand. The price is better (50 lbs. costs less than 40 lbs. at SPS.). The quality is better – greener. Most importantly, my bunnies started eating it as soon as I put it down and are perfectly accepting of this new product. After several weeks, they still seem healthy and happy. So, yes, I recommend this item.

Dusty hay bag full of small pieces

Oxbow is letting me down. Before, I used to discard about 20% of a bag of the hay due to dust and undesirable hay. Now, I have been getting a lot of dust and so many small pieces of hay that I end up having to discard mostly of the product. I am luck if I can use more than 30% of a bag or box of the hay. This product is unsuitable for rabbits that need long strands of Timothy hay to keep their teeth in check. Total waist of money and time, I am sick of having to sort hay all the time. I am very disappointed with Oxbow as I am unable to yield the amount of hay that I've paid for.

Quality varies due to hay market

I've always trusted this brand, but I can agree the quality has gone down hill, but honestly that's not Oxbow's fault. I work with horses and I can tell you ALL hay quality has gone down while prices still rise so the fact that I can still buy the same amount of hay I used to for the same price is good enough for me! I'm not finding any weeds or foreign objects like other brands and I get the occasional stick but I just pull it out and my bunny has yet to complain :)

very poor quality

I know hay is a crop so it will vary from batch to batch. But the latest shipment of 3x90 ounce bags that I received is absolutely awful. Brown and very “stringy,” with extremely thin pieces of hay. The hay actually looks frizzy and nothing like dried grass. And, all 3 bags have a strange smell. The only reason I continue to buy this brand of hay is because it is packed in plastic and I don’t want the shipment getting ruined if it sits outside in the rain while I’m at work all day. Otherwise, I’d switch to another brand.

Yes, yes and yes!

So I don’t know if Covid has messed up this brand’s supply chain, but I’m sure it’s had an impact. Getting the bagged hay from chain stores has been hit-and-miss, even with the quality. Knowing Chewy’s emphasis on quality, I took a chance buying a bigger supply, and I noted it was in a cardboard box, which is much easier for us to recycle. I opened the box to find fragrant, green hay that our guinea pigs devour! I don’t recall seeing a single piece of straw that our girls snub…just green, luscious hay that they literally dive into and eat their way out of. This will be our go-to hay source until they prove me otherwise. I hope they don’t. Thanks Chewy for sourcing amazing products!!

Gone down hill

I was buying oxbow for a long time because it use to be the best around. But now it has gone down hill. Dead hay long and hard that it pokes my poor guinea pig in the eye. Also has alot of weeds that has needles in it I keep getting suck and my girls are no longer happy with this.

Oxbow Timothy Hay

My order of Timothy Hay arrived in a timely manner. I was disappointed to notice the hay was “powdery” due to 90 ounces of product crammed into a small bag. I understand this is an issue that should be addressed with the Oxbow company, but after several inquiries, they have not remedied my dilemma.

Not normal oxbow quality

I usually order small pet select but they were out of stock. Since oxbow is considered the gold standard I ordered theirs (I use their pellets and toys often). This hay is awful. Although the color is great, the hay is all small bits. 3-4" chunks. It's like they took the leftover bits, compressed them into a block to fit in the bag and sent off. Not the quality I am used to in oxbow products. Lots of dust and I'm estimating 10-20% of the box being useless in the end due to it being so small. Too small for my bun to get these small bits out of her feeder.

Guinea pigs

I feel the same about the last 9lb box I got as well. It was not Timothy Hay, more like Orchard but not even as nice as Orchard and the smell was so off. I have almost the whole box left and I am scared to feed it to my guinea pigs. I will try another box this week but if that is no good. I will have to figure something out. Have been pretty happy with Oxbow until now.

Best food for Chinchillas

Definitely the best food out there for Chinchillas. My Chin loves this food & the large bag lasts her just over a year in a sealed container. Most importantly, we don’t have to question what harmful things like bugs or molds have gotten in it. Local pet stores don’t move stock fast enough to keep dispenser food safe for pets.
