    Hay storage idea

    I've recently switched to getting my hay from Haybox (they absolutely love it) but I love a bargain and decided I simply had to get the largest amount as it was the best value...now I have three massive 5kg cardboard boxes sat in the spare room of my fairly small flat 😅 Not like we will have any...

    Guinea pig climbing into hay feeder

    One of the new guinea pigs I got (her name is Cupcake) keeps climbing on top of her hay feeder. I’m worried that I’ll go to bed at night and then wake up with her feet stuck in her feeder. Does anyone have any advice on how to get her to stop doing that? Right now I have the feeder higher up...

    Hay storage

    Hi all, We got our latest delivery of Timothy Hay the other day and they've changed from using bags to boxes. It's quite big (9kg), in fact too big to store where we usually do bear the cage. Also, we live in a garden flat so concerned about bugs getting into the box. Anyway, my question is...

    Picky hay eater

    So I switched to a different brand of hay (cheaper for more standlee hay), same hay type (timothy), but one of my boys kinda turns his nose up to it. Like I end up putting in scraps from the other brand which is almost gone for more bedding and he goes to eat that. So I want to know will his...

    Is there such a thing as too much hay?

    Hello, I have two baby boars about 7 months and after removing their hay rack, hay is now on the floor, due to someone's suggestion they are eating like crazy. I just bought a big 96 oz bag like 3 days ago and its halfway gone. Is that good? Is that healthy to eat so much? They make me feel...

    My mum is allergic to the pigs fur and hay

    My mum has been struggling with allergies. She's taking medication and it's not working so unless I find a solution I don' know what will happen with the pigs living indoors. The main problem seems to be fur and smaller bits of hay accumulating in the washing machine after a blanket wash. I keep...

    Hay/Grass

    The glorious weather we had through May meant my two 20 week old sows have had plenty of lawn time. They've gorged and gorged on grass and have been extremely content. Now the weather has turned a bit wet they've been confined to their large hutch with bundles and bundles of hay...all of which...

    Hay Rack?

    Hi all! I was here yesterday asking for help for mites on my poor piggie girl! So I'm wondering if it would be better for me to have a hay rack that they can eat from? They normally just have a hay and grass mix on the floor for them to play in as well as they love it haha. Now however I'm...

    Dust-free hay in the US

    Quality of hay is BY FAR the most important thing to me for my girls. I'm looking for a premium hay to order online that doesn't have a ton of dust at the bottom of the bag/box. I'd order from dustfreehay.co.uk if I was in the UK, but I'm in Chicago, IL. And their hay is American-grown, so I'm...

    Hay- replaced

    Hey, I have a question: I bought 2 pounds of hay two weeks ago and put them in a cage. There was plenty more left of him. The question is, should it be replaced, or can it be left to them? Thanks

    Not Eating As Much Hay Beginning 5/7

    On Thursday, May 7, I opened a fresh new bag of hay (I use Oxbow's Timothy Hay/Orchard Grass Blend). Neither of my guinea pigs seemed that interested and preferred instead to eat what was left of their old bag; hay that was arguably less fresh and getting stale. But even then, they did not eat...

    Recommended hay racks?

    Hello, my lovelies. 😊 I’m just looking for some suggestions on what hay racks work best for your piggies in keeping at least some of the hay clean and edible. I have tried a couple of different types but no joy yet, they are still quite small so some they can’t reach or get into properly. I...

    Sow Refuses Bluegrass Hay?

    I had a very bad batch of 3rd cut timothy hay which was brown and more like 2nd cut. I decided to try the bluegrass and it is fresh and so green compared to batch I got a year back. But...my one sow is acting strange with it. She will shift through it and not sit down. She takes the strands and...

    1 year old and 3 month old. What food is better?

    I have a 1 year and 1 month old guinea pig who lives in the same cage as a 3 month old guinea pig. Should I feed pellets and hay made for adult guinea pigs or ones made for baby guinea pigs?
