    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    I'm currently buying the big bag at Petsmart($12 a bag ). As soon as I have room I will be buying from KM or Oxbow. Even with the shipping cost, it will be much cheeper per pound. (That's a weight measurement, not money- for you Brits. )

    I get my food from a rescue and i dont pay shipping that is $10.91 shipping that's crazy.
    When i buy food if i would have doubled it it would have been 6-8 dollars no tax or shipping, Hay would have been 8-9 dollars.

    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    I voted Kleenmama because that's where we get most of our hay.

    We had to buy a bag of Oxbow's Orchard Grass about a week ago because I'd overestimated how much KM was in their bins & we ran out. But that was an emergency measure & the boys are letting us know they're not happy about it (KM will be delivered tomorrow )

    We used to buy Timothy from a local feed store, but they stopped carrying it & now only carry straw. (sigh) They had such a great price too... $3 for a 30lb bale!

    Oh well, the boys are ever so much happier with their Bluegrass now... I don't know if I could go back even if they did start selling Timmy again!

    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    I said pet store, as it is the only place that sells quality hay here. "Feed All and Pet Supply" is the name of it, if anybody was curious.

    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    If your in or near the Akron, Ohio area you must check out this farm that I get my hay from. The quality is unbelievable and it's only $5 for a 50 - 60 lbs bale. This is a timothy/alfalfa mix, very soft, not stalks, a few prickers that you can easily pick out.

    The farm is actually a fish farm but they bale the most wonderful hay. It's in Doylestown, OH.

    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    I buy my Oxbow from a small locally owned pet shop that doesn't sell animals (they do sometimes host kitties from the local shelter for adoption.)

    I just ordered some third cut timothy from Kleenmama's sale.

    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    I buy most of my hay (Oxbow) at Petcarecentral.com

    There is also a pet supply store that sells Oxbow hay that I only go to if I am going to be in the area where they are located

    Petcarecentral has such good prices that even with the shipping cost added the hay still totals out to be the same as if I took a drive to the pet supply store that sells the Oxbow brand

    Happy Holidays

    I used to buy hay from a local feed store, but KM hay for a Christmas present. They have enjoyed it so much that I've changed to KM.

    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    I've gotten my timothy hay online from Oxbow Hay and American Pet Diner. Both are a great value and a box lasts a couple of months (well, that was when I had two pigs--I have 5 now). When we're in a pinch and forget to order bulk hay in time, I get it from For Other Living Things since I live only a few miles from it.

    Lightbulb Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    Is there anywhere here that has a list of links where one can buy hay or other supplies for thier Piggies Online? I'd love to browse around some shops that everyone else uses for Piggie supplies. Suggestions from other piggie parents are great!

    Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    Most of these are scattered throughout other threads, but check out:
    http://www.critterstore.com - Hay, toys, Oxbow food, not elevated shipping
    http://www.theferretstore.com - same as above, slightly higher prices, free shipping over $35 - I find that critterstore is still cheaper.
    http://www.kmshayloft.com - Excellent hay and pellets, check your area on the shipping chart
    http://www.oxbowhay.com - all Oxbow products, links to other online sources and a retail locator.

    Thumbs up Re: Hay Poll II (Where you buy your hay)

    I bought KM hay about 2 months ago. 1/2 bluegrass and 1/2 timothy 3rd cut. Let me tell you....my pigs think they are getting a treat every time I fill there hay. They go nuts for the KM hay. I use to just buy it from the pet store....they would eat it, but would never get excited about it. Not now. They we-eek away for that hay. They also prefer the bluegrass to the timothy.

    I would recommend this hay to anyone!
