New hay!

Post by iiisecondcreep on Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:37 am

So I decided that buying PaH Timothy Hay every other week at 8 for 1.8kg was getting a bit expensive, also I've recently had a few bad bags (more ends and dust than hay) so decided to try another source. Temperance is quite fussy which is why they were getting that. Buddies Bunnies recently shared a link for TimothyHay.co.uk so I decided to check them out. 10kg bag for 22 including postage (they do a 3kg bag as well). So PaH 4.44 per kg vs TH 2.2 per kg :)and it turned out they are pretty local so I was able to collect. They also send out free sample bags to try (check out their FB page).

And the verdict?

Success! Temperance and MJ LOVE it Very Happy

That is a good deal hun.

Nice and green too, Dougal will only eat green hay and it has to be Timothy or oat, he wont touch soft hay, he does not do soft LaughingLaughing, thought he had taken t it finally but he just nibbles at it. I have 2 bags of meadow hay, I keep trying him but got a feeling it may just be a lost cause. He does not do brown hay either, he looks at it like, what the hell is that humum, why is it poo co loured.? Laughing

He loves the oxbow Timothy hay, that smells lovely and is always green, get it from Hay experts - he has expensive taste when it comes to hay our little king, but he eats plenty of it and his teeth are good so I am happy he loves it.

I love that photo, so handsome your buns, looks like MJ is loving it.

So my calculations say

Hay for pets timothy and rye is 1.68 per kg (9.5kg bg delivered)
Dust free hay american timothy hay 6.39 per kg (single box)
Timothyhay.co.uk 2.20 per kg as mentioned on this thread.

Just for reference in case anyone was wondering.

With all this flooding I am actually quite worried about how much hay will cost next year. My pigs and buns go through a 9.5kg bag of hay a month.

That is true, I wonder how much it will be.

The hay from there is much cheaper than how much we pay now, cost a lot, we got a whopping 50lb box of hay as cheaper in long run than buying the smaller ones to amount to the same weight. Should last ages though, just hope it stays nice and fresh, it is in a cardboard box, the bag is partly on it but we shoved it as far down as possible to keep it fresh, nowhere to put it but the living room which gets hot, will this make the freshness go faster?

I might try that Timothy hay site next time, when we run out again, it is long stalky and green? looks like it and does it smell nice, it looks lovely.
