    How often do you get hay pokes?

    I’ve just been to the vets with BB for a hay ‘poke’ - it was actually a bit of super soft hay lying under her bottom eyelid, so not really a ‘poke’ at all! which is the third time I’ve been for this sort of thing with my trio. The vet said I may want to re-think their bedding as I’ve had a lot...

    Hi, I’m torn between using straw or wood shavings from Pets at Home? I was just wondering what all of you use in your bed and if anyone knows what type of wood shavings Pets at Home sell as we can only really use Aspen. :)

    Hi, I was just wondering if you can feed guinea pigs fresh grass as I've had an idea that i can buy a mini hay rack (like a hamster sized one) to put grass in but also have a big one for the hay during the winter so when its summer they can go on the grass and eat more of it? I don't want to...

    Hay Online - Recommendations?

    Hi all! I'm looking to change my hay brand for the girls. My local choices are limited so I'm looking into purchasing online, but that poses the risk of getting shoddy produce. Can anyone recommend a good brand that's reliable in it's quality? I'm from Ireland so American sites are out...

    Can I teach my Guinea Pig to eat Hay?

    I've had my 2 Mos old Guinea pig for almost 2 Mos now and I'm still struggling with feeding her Hay. She eats pellets and Vegetables but doesn't seem to like Hay. I've tried several, Meadow, Alfalfa and Stargrass and just a couple of days ago, Timothy Hay. She seems to like Alfalfa but can't...

    Hay in the eye and getting treated for it

    Hello! One of my piggies, Ruby, unfortunately got a tiny little piece of hay (or maybe it was hay dust) in her eye two days ago. I tried taking it off but I couldn't and it managed to get under her lower eyelid. So I was freaking out because I'm aware that this can lead to a major eye injury...

    Shelf life of hay

    Hi guys! I wanted to ask if how long is the shelf life of an Oxbow Timothy hay, hay blends or orchard hay or any hay in general. Since we have no fresh hay available here in the Philippines, I want to ask a relative to buy some for me from the US and have it shipped to me via sea cargo because...

    Any recommendations for hay that contains less dust?

    Hello! I've been feeding my 3 girls Oxbow Timothy Hay for all their lives. They absolutely love it I've noticed that it does contain lots of dust, especially when I get towards the bottom, I never finish the bag because of it. They sneeze every now and then due to the hay dust, so I feel...

    Third Cut Hay?

    I've fed my 3 guinea pigs a variety of hay, from different brands. We started with the Oxbow Blends of orchard and timothy hay. They picked out the timothy hay because they didn't enjoy it as much. Then, we fed them the Oxbow 9-lb orchard hay, but they still picked out some of the "stalkier"...

    Stargrass Hay

    Hi, I'm a new caview daddy to a month old Silkie sow from the Philippines. I've had her for almost 2 weeks now. When I initially got her, I tried feeding her Meadow grass hay which she totally ignored, that's understandable as she didn't touch her veggies too. I assumed that she's still in the...

    Is Hay Rattle/Yellow Rattle poisonous to guinea pigs?

    Hi all, With it being winter, we're using a lot more hay than usual for our guinea pigs to use as bedding and also to eat as they quite enjoy it. The only problem is that the best hay we can find has tonnes of Hay Rattle/Yellow Rattle seeds in it (literally in every handful of hay) and we're...

    Hay Help!

    Hiya all! I live in Southampton central and my piggies love Oxbow Timothy hay and meadow hay. These 1kg bags are quite pricey (£13 roughly on amazon). Just wanted to know if you guys had any ideas of good Hay for someone to get for fussy piggies with expensive taste lol

    Those of you that have a hay box...

    Hey guys, those of you that have a dedicated hay box, rather than a hay rack or just using hay as bedding, what do you use below the hay? I would love to have a dedicated hay section/box for the piggies especially Willow as she is always jumping in the hay rack to run through it... I used to...

    Fleece bedding - how much hay?

    Hi everyone, Currently, my two boys are in a C&C cage with Aubiose bedding (similar to wood shavings. We cover the whole floor with hay, so they never walk on bedding, they walk on hay. We are going to switch over to fleece bedding. Do we need to cover the floor with hay, or are they okay with a...

    What hay should I use?

    I want to bulk order some hay from Hay and Straw but I'm not sure which hay to get. They have 3 different types: Ings hay, Timothy and Rye hay and Meadow hay. Does anyone order from here and have any reviews/preferences?
