Oxbow Orchard Grass Hay makes it a good addition to a herbivore’s healthy meal plan. Like other long-strand grass hays, the soft-textured Orchard Grass Hay is high in fibre, low in protein and supports the health of small herbivores by stimulating digestion, preventing obesity and making mealtime more appealing. It can also be mixed with other types of hay to create a sweet and nutritious combination

Ingredients

 

100% Orchard Grass Preservative and Additive Free. Loose hay contains stems, leaves, and limited seed heads.

Feeding guidelines

 

  • Growing Animals: Unlimited amounts
  • Mature Animals: Unlimited amounts

Orchard Grass can be fed free-choice to rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, prairie dogs and other herbivores as an alternative to timothy, oat hay, and brome. Free-choice means that the feed is available at all times. If they finish what is given, you need to give them more! Hay should not only be used for nutritional purposes, but also for mental stimulation and the promotion of natural foraging behaviour.

Try feeding hay in new and inventive ways to increase consumption.

  • Rabbits like to eat hay in their litter box.
  • Fill a cardboard tube, basket or animal-safe toy with hay and place it in your pet’s favourite spot.
  • Put a layer of hay on the bottom of the cage and hide food/treats in the hay for foraging.
  • Put hay everywhere: the hutch, the corner, behind the couch, etc...
  • Offer a variety of mixed hays to tempt animals with sophisticated tastes.

How much do I feed daily?

It should be fed free-choice daily. That means the hay should be available at all times. 75% of a small herbivore’s diet should be hay.
