Oxbow Timothy Hay
« on: June 21, 2012, 02:33:04 PM »

Hello everyone:

I am feeding my Chins Oxbow Timothy Hay ( I think it says Western Timothy Hay).


Any hay you would recommend as better?

Thanks!

Timothy hay is good. It might be wise to switch back and forth between timothy and alfalfa as it helps the teeth to do it like that. If not just use timothy and supplement with pellets which are usually alfalfa based.

It really doesn't matter what brand the hay is. Just make sure your hay is fresh and green or it won't have the nutrients it should have. Supplementing with pellets is a good idea because extra vitamins and minerals are mixed it. With pellets it matters a lot what kind you get because some mixes can actually be harmful.
