I've been searching for hay for my mini rex, the problem is that she is a very picky eater and only likes certain cuts. I have tried to find hay locally but it seems like she doesn't like anything they have right now. I recently bought 2 bales of what I think is 1st cut orchard grass (not sure if is 1st cut but is super nice and green), but she doesn't seem to like it that much (my other bunny seems to love it so it's not going to waste). I don't want to buy oxbow because sometimes my bunny loves it and sometimes she doesn't even want to touch it (my guess is that they have mix cuts). I am a little hesitant to buy hay online because I don't want to be stuck with even more hay, but at this point I'm running out of options.
I have heard that Kleenmama loft hay's 2nd and 3rd cut timothy are pretty nice, but some years their cuts aren't as nice. Has anyone bought some of their hay recently, is so, how was it?
Some one also suggested to get hay from Sierra Valley Pet Hay, but I haven't heard much about them and their hay quality. However, they have 2nd orchard (my bunny's fav), so I'm thinking to get some from them. Has anyone tried their hay before?
I'm sorry for the long post but this bunny mom is getting worried that if she doesn't find hay soon, her super picky bunny will run out of hay
My rabbits' hay consumption went way up when I switched from Oxbow to Sierra Valley. The quality of Sierra Valley is so much better. My rabbits seriously love the oats that come in their oat hay. The orchard grass is great too.
APD seems pretty nice but a little price for how much you get (a 20 oz bag will only last me around 3-4 days knowing my bunny , but I will definitely consider it if I can't find any other hay.
