Young Oat is meant for bunnies a year and older due to the seeds being a bit harder than Mature Oat. 1st Cutting (early Harvest) Younger Oat is mostly green, however, if it is later in the year can change the color to a more brown color - season factors can change this and make younger oat more brown. It is not mature oat when it is brown. It was cut earlier and flavor is same. Young Oat can change to a more brown through the season before the next harvest. Weather issues can also make Young Oat browner.
Ever since I started giving this to my bunny Bailey, her sensitive digestive system has improved. She eats more hay than ever! This is great for bunnies going through a molt. Encouraging them to eat hay will help them keep the hair moving through their digestive tract.. People who are allergic to grass hays may find Oat a better alternative. Guaranteed freshness and pesticide free! Mini bales are perfect to mix and match with our other hays. Easy to store until you're ready to open.
Guaranteed freshness, dye free and pesticide free! Don't be fooled by other mini-bales now being sold at pet stores. Compare the hay quality and the weights of these mini-bales against the ones in the store. These mini-bales pack in more the buck!
- IF ITEM IS IN "PRE-ORDER"MODE: THAT MEANS THAT WE WILL BE GETTING HAY WITHIN A WEEK, so you can still order but the shipping of your entire order may delayed a few days. (just depends how close you order to when we pick up and that varies week to week). IF YOU WANT THE OTHER ITEMS SOONER, THEN ORDER THEM SEPARATELY
- Young Oat is meant for bunnies a year and older. The younger harder seed heads are more difficult for bunnies under a year to digest.. Oat's high fiber and sweeter taste is a favorite with bunnies. A great companion hay to mix in with others. Perfect for rabbits that snub their noses up at all other hays, or just a perfect way to mix in a little variety.
- The photo of hay expanded is of Mature Oat for size reference only. About all of the super compressed mini bales we sell Hays are brought directly from the field to our supplier's sealed air conditioned facilities to assure its freshness and to assure it isn't exposed to rodents or birds as barn stored hay can be.
