Thanks for the information! I'm not sure, almost every website and person said Timothy Hay was necessary for rabbits...I just fed alfalfa pellets to my rabbits. I never heard about feeding different types of hay. Pellets are easy, less waste than when i tried feeding hay, and we had 100 breeders. I fed 1 oz rolled oats in the am (standard oats fell through the screen bottom feeders) and 1 cup pellet at night worked well. I was on an accelerated breeding program, so I used 18% instead of standard 16% pellet to keep the does in good condition. For the rabbits DH was showing we made up a mix of sunflower seeds, oats, barley, sweet feed, occasionally some calf manna. Only fed 1 oz of that and really did not see much difference. If I had older does on the accelerated breeding program I would occasionally give a bit of calf manna for their milk production. The oats put on hard flesh for the show table.
What is the reason for feeding Timothy?
