I dumped some freshhay on the lawn for the buns to forage in and it got rained on. They have fresh hay daily in the aviary but they choose to eat the wet stuff on the lawn. Is this ok? I mean, buns would eat wet grass wouldn't they so is the hay ok too?

They seem ok on it, no obvious ill effects. They have some lovely hay in the hayrack, the stuff on the lawn is some awful tough stuff I bought from the local city farm.

On the day it gets rained on it would be fine but I wouldn't offer it up for longer than that, in case mycotoxins form in the damp. This is the same reason pellets should always be stored in cool dry conditions.

Thanks for that Sooz, I did put some fresh out today but won't bother anymore as it is a bit wasteful really. Thanks for that.
