MORE ABOUT Rabbit Hay & Grasses

Small animal welfare, nutrition and care is at the heart of what we do. It’s why we’ve taken part in rescues and worked behind the scenes with a number of rabbit product manufacturers. It’s also why we provide free welfare and care advice to concerned rabbit owners.

These experiences have helped us to better understand rabbit needs, which has translated into us sourcing the best fresh hay for rabbits – among a great many other things. Plus, it helps to have our delightful ‘hay experts’ product-testing our rabbit feeding hay! They can tell good quality hay from a distance and select the best strand from a pile of thousands!

We carry many types of hay, grass and leafy greens that are high in nutritional value and manufactured by vet-recommended brands, including us! Some of our more popular products include orchard grass, Timothy hay, sweet-smelling green meadow hay, dried fresh grass, dandelion and marigold.

If you have any concerns or doubts about the suitability of our products, please do call us or view the further information section per product. We’re happy to advise on whether different hays and foods are suitable for adult rabbits or baby rabbits, and how they support your rabbit’s health (for example, if something is a high-fibre food that helps your rabbit’s digestive system, or if it’s high in calcium to strengthen your rabbit’s teeth).

While browsing our range of high-quality rabbit hay, remember to view our bottles and bowls for rabbits – they are hygienic, easy to clean and dishwasher safe. They’re also nibble-resistant!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What hay is best for rabbits?
The best hay for rabbits is the hay your rabbit enjoys eating! Even the best quality hay is no good if your rabbit refuses to eat it, and in rabbit hay world, quantity eaten is more important than anything else. The more hay eaten, the better the dental wear and better digestive health will be.

Hays ideal to feed include timothy hay, meadow hay, orchard grass, grass, oat and wheat hays. We sell may different varieties and recommend you feed about 3 different types of hay to your rabbit for interest and variety. We’re here to help you find the hays your rabbits just love, so do get in touch if we can help your rabbit get the hay habit!
What cut of hay is best for rabbits?
The cut of hay can refer to the chop length of the hay, where individual strands of hay can be kept long or cut short. Some rabbits prefer long strands and some prefer short strands!

Cut also, more commonly, refers to the nature of the hay; whether it is stalky, soft, leafy, crisp, stemmy or mixed. This cut relates to when the hay was harvested, and the weather and general conditions throughout growth. Hay really is not just hay!

The best cut of hay to feed your rabbit is the cut that your rabbit enjoys eating. Coarse, stemmy hay is great for digestive health, and some leafy hays can give more dental wear than others, but the quantity of hay eaten is the most important factor. We recommend offering a variety of different cuts for all-round dental and digestive health and for interest and enjoyment too.

Some rabbits hate soft cut hays, and some rabbits just won’t touch a coarse hay! But worry not, we are here to help you find the hays your rabbit prefers to eat – just get in touch and our animal medicines advisor can help!
How should I store hay for my rabbits?
Hay should be stored away from light, strong odours, anywhere damp, and ideally stored in an area with reasonably constant temperatures that are neither too hot or too cold.

A garage, dry outbuilding, moisture-proof storage container is ideal, and a kitchen cupboard (away from cooking and washing areas) is fine too.

Sunlight can create condensation on the inside of any plastic packaging within just a few minutes, and this is really bad for the hay (and those eating it!), so storing the hay in a breathable non-plastic bag, such as a cotton hay bag, is ideal too!
How much hay should a rabbit eat?
Rabbits should eat a lot of hay every day. In terms of volume, a rabbit should eat a pile of hay the same size as itself every day.

To achieve this, it is important to find hays your rabbit enjoys eating, and also to balance or portion control the rest of the daily food intake (such as pellets, nuggets or other food, vegetables and treats).

Do get in touch with us if you think your rabbit is not eating enough hay – we are here to help. In rabbit world, hay really is the main course!
What kind of hay do baby rabbits eat?
Baby rabbits will start to eat the same hay as their mum as soon as they are able to – and it is important they get the hay habit as early as possible!

Baby rabbits will also benefit from eating alfalfa (which is actually not hay, but part of the legume family), as it is very high in calcium and will help with bone development and growth. As it is so high in calcium, alfalfa should only be fed as a treat to adult rabbits, but it is OK for a nursing mum to eat more alfalfa as she will need more calcium for her milk production.

As baby rabbits grow they should be encouraged to eat a variety of hays in quantity for a healthy start in life, and should enjoy timothy or meadow hay, for example, though may not enjoy very coarse hays as they only have little mouths!!
