    DIY botanical hay or similar to the Oxbow hay?

    I really like this hay (https://www.oxbowanimalhealth.com/ou...botanical-hay/) but it is hard to find in stores and only comes in small bags. How could I safely make this for my own piggies? Can I purchase herbs off a shelf or should I be wary of it being safe for pigs? Or should I just buy fresh/live herbs and mix it in?

    Or is there something similar I can buy in a store? I am wary of buying online since I can't see what I'm getting and I've read stories of mites being in the bags.

    There are mites in, and on, everything, including you and me. I wouldn't worry about the mites in the bags.

    What kinds of herbs are in the Oxbow hay?
