The first box we got was great :/ The second box was 30% straw, and my bunny has yet to eat a single piece of any of it. I opened the box in dim light but almost immediately could tell it was wrong by the texture. It's super dry and stiff and I have to pick out huge clumps of hard useless grass. Ironically they put a postcard on top of the box this time :( it feels bad, man. Like a taunt.
All the bunnies really enjoyed this hay! Their ages range from 2-6. As I cleaned their litter boxes, I would catch them in the hay box since they were so eager! Although they enjoyed it, all four bunny’s poop became super dark and uneven in size (compared to golden when eating Oxbow). Dark poop usually means they are getting too much protein.
I always order this brand for my rabbit and it’s her favorite. I usually order off their website but decided to order the bigger pack on chewy this time to get everything at once. Unfortunately the quality is a lot worse than I usually get, I’m not sure why. 2/3 of the box I received today was dust and short strands vs the long fresh strands they usually send me. Not sure if this was just a quality control mistake or if chewy keeps these packages on hand elsewhere and maybe it’s old? Either way, it’s not the worst I’ve ever had but will be ordering direct from seller in the future.
My guinea pigs enjoy the hay and it seems good quality for the price. My problem is the packaging. It's a long flat box with a foldover/tuck in flap (think pizza box) which is a pain with a box this size regardless of the contents. Now you put compressed hay in a box like that with no bag or flaps to help contain the mess while you're removing a portion to feed your animals, and you get hay ALL OVER your living room! I'll buy this hay again, but I'm contemplating repackaging it before I even bring it inside next time.
Arrived quickly in about 3-4 days. I have a pig who barely eats hay to the point where I’ve had to give her vitamins because she won’t eat it. I put this in her cage and man she loved it! She’s been eating it for nearly 30 minutes now! All of my other piggies seem to enjoy it too. I’m a tad nervous about the fact that the hay was thrown into the box without any wrapping around it, and hope that there’s no mites or other bugs picked up through shipping. I’m also hoping the bottom of the box is just as good as the top. I’d say for the price it seems to be good and will last awhile- just hope they keep the same flap open box style and start wrapping the entire outside of the box is some form of plastic for mite and bug control.
I swapped both my rabbits and my guinea pigs to this hay for two reasons: their previous hay had tanked in quality, and my allergies hate Timothy hay. This hay solved both problems! The hay itself is always a beautiful, nice green and has long, plentiful strands. The suppliers aren’t stingy with the amount to you get either; I’ve never gotten a box that wasn’t borderline overstuffed! There’s very little dust, and the hay fines that ARE left behind are the perfect size to make homemade treats with. My allergies are unbothered and my boys still get good quality hay AND treats at the end. Definitely recommend it to anyone who’s looking to swap hay for whatever reason.
Chewy, why why whyyy have you betrayed me :( this packaging will be the bane of my existence! I’ve never received hay in a box that doesn’t have the flaps that fold I to the slots so it SHUTS!! Ok, I’m being dramatic. But seriously…. What a hassle. Atleast the hay is fresh. Just going to have to transfer it to a trash bag.
This is really nice hay. I am a picky hay purchaser and I would recommend.
I’m so grateful that there is high quality hay available for my Guinea pigs! This hay is beautiful: soft, green, fresh with NO weeds or foxtails. My usual go to (Oxbow) has gone downhill, so I’m grateful there is an alternative!
They get so excited when I refill their hay. I love that it comes in a big box and can be stored away until I need to refill their hay bin. The grass is so fresh even a technician working on my washing machine complimented it!
