Timothy oat oarchard botanicle meadow.... so many hays you can try. Even brand to brand will be different because field to field their all different. Just no alfalfa/lucerne.
It is important shes eating hay. You may need to decrease her other foods to make her eat it.

I changed the Hay, she seems to like this one better! No fruit today, and will limit the pellets.

Although she is eating the new Hay, she is now eating her bedding ( Hay), she definitely prefers the taste of this, she hasn't stopped gnawing on it. :-s

What kind of setup do you have her in?
Most people here dont use bedding at all because buns are so easy to litter train (even easier if you dont use bedding) and curious as to why youre using hay as bedding. I could see straw but why hay? It is not absorbent and makes pretty terrible bedding honestly.
I mean eating hay regardless is yay but curious as to the quality of the hay youre using as bedding.

I meant Straw! My bad. She's eating Hay And Straw, but more Straw than hay still.

I would nix the straw and use something else for bedding if you must. Otherwise no bedding is honestly easier to litter train with.
Don't really want her getting a blockage.
