Ryegrass Hay and Alfalfa Hay FAQs

Collapsible content

How do I feed Ryegrass Hay?

We best recommend feeding (smaller quantities) of Ryegrass Hay in addition to your small pet's normal hay source (i.e. Timothy Hay or Meadow Hay) for added enrichment.

Try presenting your small pet's hays in different ways too to excite them! You can use household items such as empty toilet roll and egg boxes to encourage your rabbit or guinea pig to eat more hay.

How do I feed Alfalfa Hay?

Enriching your small pet's diet has never been so easy with our Alfalfa Hay. Alfalfa Hay is most suitable for young, growing and lactating small pets, however, it can be a great hay to introduce to adult pets for enrichment.

For pets up to 6 months, Alfalfa Hay should be their main forage choice and for adult pets, introduce it in smaller quantities.

Is Ryegrass Hay similar to Timothy Hay?

Like Timothy Hay, Ryegrass Hay is long, green and stalky but with enhanced nutrition. We would recommend feeding Tasty Timothy Hay (or Moreish Meadow) as your small pet's main hay (fibre) source and feed Ryegrass Hay alongside it in smaller quantities.

Always introduce new hay types to your small pets over a period of 7 to 14 days.

Who is Alfalfa Hay suitable for?

Alfalfa Hay is suitable for small pet's up to 6 months, growing pets, nursing mums as well as those unwell or recovering from an injury. Its high calcium and protein content means it's a great choice for health and development in your small pets.

Can I introduce a new hay to my Small Pet's diet?


As recommended by our in-house nutritionist Briony, always introduce new hay types to your small pet's diet, gradually, over a period of 7 to 14 days.
