    How much hay a day per Llama? I was wondering like how many flakes on a square bale per llama a day? and how many pounds of feed per day?

    My llamas are getting free fed from a 1st cut round bale this year, but, when they get fed from square bales, they get 5 or 6 lbs of hay per llama per day. My llamas get no grain.
