Oxbow Orchard Grass Hay makes it a good addition to an herbivore’s healthy meal plan. Like other long-strand grass hays, the soft-textured Orchard Grass Hay is high in fiber, low in protein and supports the health of small herbivores by stimulating digestion, preventing obesity and making mealtime more appealing. It can also be mixed with other types of hay to create a sweet and nutritious combination


100% Orchard Grass Preservative and Additive Free. Loose hay contains stems, leaves, and limited seed heads.

Feeding guidelines

  • Growing Animals: Unlimited amounts
  • Mature Animals: Unlimited amounts

Orchard Grass can be fed free choice to rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, prairie dogs and other herbivores as an alternative to timothy, oat hay, and brome. Free-choice means that the feed is available at all times. If they finish what is given, you need to give them more! Hay should not only be used for nutritional purposes, but also for mental stimulation and the promotion of natural foraging behavior.

Try feeding hay in new and inventive ways to increase consumption.

  • Rabbits like to eat hay in their litter box.
  • Fill a cardboard tube, basket or animal-safe toy with hay and place it in your pet’s favorite spot.
  • Put a layer of hay on the bottom of the cage and hide food/treats in the hay for foraging.
  • Put hay everywhere: the hutch, the corner, behind the couch, etc...
  • Offer a variety of mixed hays to tempt animals with sophisticated tastes.

How much do I feed daily?

It should be fed free choice daily. That means the hay should be available at all times. 75% of a small herbivore’s diet should be hay.

55 Lovely hay
Verified Purchase

Really pleased with this hay. It’s green, fresh and clean. I prefer the Oxbow Timothy hay for my guinea pig but this comes second. The Timothy hay is softer and has various hay leaves. Great quality in any event

55 Doogle The Bunny LOVES This..
Verified Purchase

By on 25 May 2017

Doogle is a very fussy eater as he's a very spoilt bunny. But when I supply him with this he ploughs through it more than any other hay. I assume it must be tasty. Not only tasty, great for digestion and wearing down teeth from chewing the long fibres. I ordered the largest bag available since a small bag would only last a couple of days due to him scoffing it over any alternative. So I recommend for even the fussy bunnies! From VioVet I'm certain it's the best price and the quality is amazing...all fresh-smelling and green and long strands rather than dust. I will be back to VioVet within a week for more for sure! My 1st time ordering from VioVet and I'm very impressed with their goods (I bought many other items) and their prices, also the delivery came so much earlier than anticipated which is a bonus and the fact it was free too was grand! I love VioVet it's now my new online pet store. Very happy customer and Doogle's pleased too :)
