A rescue near me (actually its a 45 minute drive) sells hay and food and toys (etc) and they have oxbow orchard grass for 42$! but it is 25lbs. is that a rip off? a bargain? average? i really have no idea how much hay costs, but that is quite pricey! even if it is 25lbs.
they said it comes in a box, if anyone has bought a 25lbs box of orchard grass from oxbow, could you tell me how big the box is? because 25lbs is little heavy. i have a HUGE (around 40lbs) bale of bermuda hay in the garage but it doesnt seem very high quality?
anyway, so do you think 25lbs of hay is a lot for 2 rabbits? i have an 8 week old holland lop and a 1 and a 1/2 (or nearly) year old holland lop who is neutered (i am taking precautions in housing no need to worry about that). also quick question, the baby bunny is on alfalfa hay ONLY should i be mixing in some orchard grass in her diet too? or JUST alfalfa hay? she is on unlimited alfalfa pellets as well (slooowly transitioning her over to the food i have). is it strictly alfalfa hay and pellets until 7 months of age?
also another thing: i plan on getting the baby bun spayed at 6 months of age, does that mean i need to feed her unlimited alfalfa pellets and hay for another month until she is 7 months? and then transition her into timothy? or can i start transitioning her into timothy pellets right after her spay? i am allergic to timothy hay so unfortunately that is not an option!
so is 25lbs of hay too much? for 2 rabbits - both seem to love hay, the mini bales from the BB store are great but my older rabbit will go through it in around a month and now that i have 2 rabbits...!
