Feeding Instructions

May be fed to rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other small animals.

Baby rabbits: A baby rabbit, or kit, feeds solely on its mother's milk for about the first three weeks. During the first few days, the milk contains high levels of antibodies that help protect the kit from disease. After three weeks, the kit will begin nibbling on alfalfa hay and pellets. By 7 weeks of age, baby rabbits can handle unlimited access to pellets and alfalfa hay in addition to mother's milk. Kits are usually weaned from their mother's milk by 8 weeks of age, depending on the breed.

Juveniles: Between weaning and 7 months of age, the young rabbit can have an unlimited amount of pellets and alfalfa hay. At 3 months of age, start introducing small amounts of vegetables into your rabbit's diet. Introduce one vegetable at a time. If any vegetable seems to cause digestive problems, avoid feeding it in the future.

Young adults: Young adult rabbits from age 7 months to 1 year should be introduced to timothy and grass hays, and it should be available all-day long. The fiber in the hay is essential for their digestive systems to work properly. At this point, they will require little alfalfa hay, as well as fewer pellets. Instead of offering unlimited pellets, a good rule of thumb is 1/2 cup of pellets per 6 lbs. of body weight daily. To make up for the nutritional loss, you must increase your rabbit's intake of vegetables and hay. You can feed your rabbit some fruits during this stage, but because of calories, limit them to no more than 1-2 ounces per 6 pounds of body weight daily.

Mature adults: Mature adult rabbits should be fed unlimited timothy, grass hay, and oat hay. Once again, you should reduce the pellet portion of the diet. A standard guideline is 1/4 cup of pellets per 6 lbs. of body weight per day. Several servings of vegetables are required (2 cups per 6 pounds of body weight daily).

    Too short and dusty

    By Peegs on Apr 11, 2021

    Was very green and fresh but way too much was wasted with small strands and so dusty. This lasted just a little over half as long as normally with this amount of lbs. The room actually got layer of dark green dust on furniture and fan too. I got this as a backup because other way was delayed in shipment and will not repurchase.

    Soft hay, smells great

    By Lesby on Nov 14, 2020

    This hay is softer than RH Timothy and I thought my chins would eat more of it. They seem to trample it and not much is eaten. I have picky chins so it’s no surprise. The color is bright and hay smells good. I didn’t like that the pieces were short - about 6” I guess it was cut to fit in bag.

    It's okay, short strands but greenish.

    By KokoSnapMom on Sep 6, 2020

    I normally by SPS orchard, but since hay is a seasonal thing, i got a bad brown batch. While I'm waiting for a fresh replacement from them, i bought this Rabbit hole as a substitute. It's not the best, but i guess it will do for now. It's very short pieces and kinda dusty for orchard grass. My piggies prefer the long strands, because they get so excited when we stuff their toys with hay. Hard to do that with short bits. This also just falls out of the hay bag. I wish i had gotten one of the long strand boxes everyone is raving about.

    Great hay for guinea pigs!

    By guineapigmom on Aug 31, 2020

    This hay smells so good fresh out of the box. It is compacted so well, that it’s easy to take the hay out. I see literally no dust as well. My guinea pigs are so happy to have this, and can’t get enough. This is one of the best hays I have ever purchased.

    Great hay!

    By Ally on Jul 30, 2020

    My guinea pigs love this hay. It is packaged in a bag inside a box, so it seems fresher than other hay I've purchased, which was just dumped in a box. Also I've purchased this hay many times and it's the one that seems the least broken up into dust at the end of the bag. That's SUPER important, obvi bc my demanding piggy gourmets prefer the larger strands of hay. And this box has the best ratio of large strands to dust.

    Guineas love it

    By Genie on Oct 15, 2020

    My guineas love this hay! It comes neatly packed and seems to last longer than other brand I have used. Hay is always fresh. Hay doesn’t get dusty.
