The hay is always decent quality, albeit somewhat inconsistent in texture, likely due to using different cuttings. Recently I've been finding bits of bailing twine in it though which is not okay. I'll probably be switching to a different brand.
I rescued three guinea pigs over 4yrs ago , that were fed pellets rarely , but was fed iceberg lettuce and cat food yes cat food , I rescued them and it took about 3 months for them to eat timothy but once they started eating they could not get enough . I only have one left out of the three which is Rosie & she loves this brand & mix .
When I rescued My Rosie she came along with her sister and a male , they were living in horrible existence , like live maggots in their urine/feces soaked small cages & kept on a open porch with no heat in 40 degree weather , so I rescued them . And found out they were fed pellets every so often but their main diet was carrots & ice berg lettuce and cat food yes cat food because it was cheap . When I took them in they would not eat the timothy hay I have gotten them , they just burrowed in it . So I tried this since it has timothy & orchard grass , it took about 6 months for them to finally eat this hay , I was working with a guinea pig rescue and they suggested to omit pellets every other day & omit veggies/fruit every other day & just feed this . Between the omitting & treats being rubbed in the hay they finally started eating it . This smells so fresh when first opening & love the resealable bag & the pigs are so healthy now Vet is impressed , from being so skinny to point of almost death to happy healthy pigs .
Everything was as expected! I am on the lookout to find small quantity like this product, but not wrapped in plastic
Oxbow has been the best hay option for my rabbit, and now that he is getting a little older I definitely want to make sure I give him the best quality hay that he will enjoy.
Great hay. Has a good, nice variety of grass. Recommended.
Normally I buy this hay for my piggies and it’s better quality than this. This time it just seems like there’s so much dust throughout the entire bag. The quality could be better, and I’ve been buying chewy products for a while now. Just disappointed I guess.
This was once my go-to hay because it wasn’t full of hay dust but now…I don’t know…it is so choppy looking and doesn’t have nearly as many hay flowers in it…not sure if we will continue with this product. Toodles doesn’t seem to like it as much as she did before.
My order came quickly and was just what I needed! It also lasts my Guinea pig for at least two months!
On a good day, I really like this hay. However, it seems 50/50 whether I get a good bag and this doesn’t change if I get it from Chewy or somewhere else. It will be brown and stringy (if that makes sense). My guinea pigs don’t seem to eat as much of it when it’s like this. When it’s good though I really like it and my pigs do too!
