More information

There are two types of hay; grass hay and legume hay. Alfalfa hay is a legume hay, it has long-strand fibre but with higher energy, protein and calcium. Its concentrated nutrition is ideal for young and lactating animals or those recovering from illness. As the animal matures or recovers the hay should be replaced with a grass hay but mixing in a little Alfalfa every now and then makes a tasty, rich and nutritious treat Grass hays such as Timothy, Meadow hay and Oat hay tend to be lower in calories and protein and higher in fibre. For rabbits this should make up 80% of their diet and the remaining 20% should be leafy green veg. Legume hays are higher in protein and calories and slightly lower in fibre. This should be fed to rabbits when they are expending more energy and need the extra calories.

Rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas under 6 months can be fed Alfalfa daily with the aim of a gradual transition to a grass diet.
