Rabbit Hay Feeding 

Hay is essential to a rabbit’s good health, and should make up 80% (ish) of their diet when they’re an appropriate age. Before 3 weeks, your rabbit should be relying solely on his mother’s milk. Of course, as they get older, you should supplement diet with Timothy-based pellets, and safe fruits and veggies.  

AGE TYPE QUANTITY
3-4 weeks Alfalfa Some nibbles
4-7 weeks Alfalfa Unlimited
7 weeks - 7 months Alfalfa Unlimited
7 months - 1 year Timothy, Oat, Orchard, Other (and decrease alfalfa) Unlimited
1 year + Timothy, Oat, Orchard, Other Unlimited


Choosing the Right Hay for Rabbits

Although 2nd cut Timothy hay is the standard for healthy adult buns, mixing and matching is good too... it keeps things interesting.

The Basics of Timothy Hay for Rabbits 
Timothy hay is a popular option for bunny hay. Ours is selected for its freshness and available in three cuttings, so you can choose the best fit for your bunny.

1st cutting Timothy hay is high in fiber, but low in protein and fat. It’s great for weight management and GI issues, and helps wear down bunny teeth with its rich stem growth and low leaf.

2nd cutting Timothy hay has a bouncy stem and medium leaf. Its standard levels of fiber, protein, and fat make it the perfect hay for adult rabbits. 

3rd cutting Timothy hay is low in fiber, high in protein and fat, so it’s the best hay type for bunnies looking to liven up their diets and work on weight management. Its soft texture is also ideal for bunnies dealing with mouth pain.

Did You Know?

You can encourage your small animal’s curiosity through play, and hay is great for this. Rabbits especially love hanging hay mobiles, like this one, to tug on for a healthy helping. Not only does playtime stimulate a rabbit’s mind, it allows them to practice natural behaviors.

Rabbits Love Different Hays, Too!

Your bunny will love mixed hay as a tasty add-on to their daily diet. Try our orchard hay. YUM. Or if you want to really see some magic, our gourmet hay is pretty great.
