Hay is absolutely vital to the health of small herbivores. It provides not only nutrition, but environmental enrichment that mimics the animal’s natural habitat.
Oat Hay is harvested before the oat develops into a seed. Oat Hay, like all grass hay, meets the nutritional needs of herbivores with high fiber and low protein. Chaff is processed hay which is separated by winnowing or threshing from the stock hay, eliminating unnecessary dust making it cleaner and prevents allergenic and respiratory issues.
