Hi all,

I started adding some Timothy and Orchard Hay into my bun's hay rack a few days ago. I've noticed that she will pick out and eat only the Alfalfa Hay and leaving behind the other hay. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the switch? My bun will be 4 months next week.

Thanks!

Keep mixing but try to mix it really well to disperse it all as much as possible. Also, gradually decrease the portion of the alfalfa. Even if he isn't eating the grass hays, he is getting familiar with its scent. He'll be bound to eat some as well, even accidentally. It's the unfamiliar that some rabbits refuse, but the scent of those new hays are becoming more familiar as you keep offering them.
