Timothy Hay is an important part of a rabbit’s diet. It should consist of 80% of their diet. Hay also helps to keep a rabbit’s teeth grinded down.
A fresh supply of timothy hay should always be available to your rabbit, as well as a bowl of water.
I used to run a rabbitry called Bushy Tail Rabbitry, where we raised Holland Lops and Netherland Dwarfs. When our timothy hay stackers arrived in the mail, let’s just say I was pretty excited to get them out to my rabbits.
Mable and Stewy were the only ones to try them, and as you can tell Stewy was really only interested in sniffing the box it was contained in.
Stewy was one of our Holland Lop bucks that went to his forever home with a 4-H family.
Mable is still with us and as of right now she is enjoying binkying through the snow.
When I gave these two their hay stacks they immediately took to munching on them. Original hay that comes in the bags is messy, this is compressed hay. Easier to clean up.
You can find these timothy hay stacks here for only $9.99, and they last awhile!
