Default Oxbow harvest stacks?

I'm thinking about trying these out. Any opinions on them?

I've tried them. My rabbits were not overly fond of them but ate a good deal of it. It's a space saver that's for sure but you have to break it up for them to eat. Give it a shot why not.

Yea @blackminirex they are in a hard stack, I just watched a YouTube video on them, you can break them open and they can expand into a lot of hay. I'm thinking it might be better for my allergies (in allergic to Timothy hay).

I have used them and while they say they're less dusty I find they're more messy than the loose oxbow hay because the strands of hay are shorter. Even though I twist them open, the rabbits will grab chunks and take them to the middle of their rug and throw them all over vs. the loose hay stays in the litterbox.
I do keep them in my earthquake kit for emergencies though!

So do you think they are more messy than regular hay?

I find them to be messier than regular hay. I got some to try since Harvey likes Timothy hay and I'm allergic. However once the compressed clump is chewed into, my sneezing starts up.
