 Hey all! I wanted to know what brand of timothy pellets you feed your buns. I currently use one that's kind of expensive (forgot the name) but want to get a cheaper brand if possible. Thanks!

The tide always turns.

Oxbow as well. I prefer paying for good quality, wouldn't want to go cheaper.

I use Oxbow or American Pet Diner. Pellets really are the cheapest part of a rabbit's diet so even the high quality really aren't that expensive. Pellets are also the smallest part of a rabbit's diet.

I've been using Bonanza, but my rabbit's vet told me that's okay when they're still growing but now that's he's 7 months I've got to switch to other pellets. Like Sarita says, the pellets are the smallest part (about 1/4 cup per 5 lbs) so if you spring for the expensive stuff it'll last ya!

Oxbow here as well. I work for a pet store and get 20% off on it and if it's going to expire soon I get an extra few bucks off so it's pretty inexpensive for me.

I'll be the black sheep here and say I feed my bunnies ZuPreem Nature's Promise. It doesn't have any little treats or seeds in it and is higher in fiber than all the other timothy pellets at my local store. But maybe I'll look into ordering Oxbow now that I see I'm the only one...

Same here. It's great getting a bag free once in a while. My pet store offers these cards for any type of pet food. I wish they did it for hay as well.

I feed the Zupreem too, I really like it. I've done Oxbow in the past, as well as the new Carefresh pellets. I tend to switch around, which works for Riley but maybe wouldn't work for most buns. I really like Zupreem as a brand, and it is available at several of the large chain pet stores, which has been easier for me because I've moved around.

I feed Oxbow hay and have nothing against that company either! Since pellets are such a small part of their diet, I find that it doesn't cost me much at all (Riley only eats 1/8 cup a day, so a 5# bag of pellets lasts me basically forever!).

They have hay punch cards too! Buy 6 bags, get the 7th free! Both the pellet and the hay punch cards are specific for Oxbow. I think they come from the manufacturer. The store probably has some sort of contract with them, I'm not sure.
