Help & Advice
Firstly, in terms of cost per kg of hay eaten, you’ll find we’re cheaper! Why? There’s very little of our hay goes into the bin versus low-price hay. Here’s why…
Dust free – we hand sieve our hay to minimise the amount of dust packed in the box, which has two benefits for you:
o 99% of the product is edible hay unlike cheaper brands which have a high content of dust you need to throw away.
o Your house isn’t getting covered in dust and you’re not sneezing or wheezing from hay dust.
Hand-sorted – the team remove brown and dead leaves from the hay before it gets packed in the box, meaning there’s more nutritious goodness in every box
Fresh & nutritious – our hay is dried in the sun keeping it fresher, greener, and lovely smelling, so your little furry friend goes mad for it
But it’s not just the hay you’re paying for, our packaging is more expensive but we think it’s worth it. Here’s why:
Better Materials - Cardboard costs much more than shrink wrapped plastic, but It’s fully recyclable so there’s no waste or plastic going to landfill. (And our inner bag is compostable)
Easier to Store - The box is it easier to store in your home (and can be a little edible playground for your furry friend, just don’t let them eat too much of it!)
Less Mess - The easy to open and re-closable box stops hay going all over your home after opening
Longer Lasting – closing the box lid keeps the hay out of sunlight and fresher for longer than shrink-wrapped hays
The RSPCA recommends at least a ‘rabbit-sized’ bundle of fresh hay for each rabbit daily. The good news is that any un-eaten hay can be used as bedding so there is nothing to lose in making your rabbit’s home a hay paradise!
Do also offer them a variety of safe, washed leafy dark greens or weeds daily as well (but it should never be more than around 5% to 10% of their diet). The RSPCA recommends kale, cabbage, broccoli, parsley and mint as safe plants to feed rabbits. You could also flavour the hay by adding a few herbs like basil, rosemary or coriander. Monitor how their digestive system responds to new foods as their tummies can be very easily upset.
The RSPCA also recommend you avoid muesli like foods. It's like very bad fast food for your furry friend, which can cause lots of stomach problems and won't wear down their teeth.
Like humans, your rabbit must always have unlimited access to clean, fresh water – without water they can become seriously ill. The RSPCA suggests checking the water levels at least twice daily.
