    • Timothy Hay in Australia

      Hay should make up 80% of a rabbit's diet. Many online articles refer to timothy hay as a staple in the diet of rabbits, which is the case in the US. However, as it isn't grown in Australia, timothy hay is imported and only available for purchase in bags, which can become quite expensive. As a result, in Australia, most bunny owners use local produce (e.g. oaten, meadow, rye, or teff hay) to make up the bulk of what they feed their rabbits, which is more affordable and can be purchased in bales. However, if you are going to purchase timothy hay in Australia, there are generally 4 brands available. Oxbow Peters Burgess Alfalfa King We have found that if you shop around and buy them on sale, all four brands can be purchased for $20-$25 per kilogram. You can see a quick comparison of 3 of the brands available in the photo. Please note the Oxbow sample came from a 4kg bag, the Burgess sample came from a 1kg bag of 'Excel Feeding Hay with Dandelion and Marigold', which is made up of 98% timothy hay, and the Peters sample came from a 1kg bag of timothy hay, which is completely different to their timothy & rye hay blend. We like using timothy hay in our treat toys because our bunnies love it and it isn't their normal everyday hay, which makes it feel like a treat whilst remaining very healthy. References

    • Our Willow & Apple Products

      In Australia the term 'organic' can be used on a product irregardless of how it was produced without any legal consequences. We use apple and willow from Loriendale Orchard, which is a small family run farm just outside Canberra and is #certifiedorganic so you can be certain that no pesticides have been used. We restock every few weeks, during which the #applechew sticks you ordered from China are still making their way here. You might find silica gel packs in your order because its still fresh so best to keep well ventilated and somewhere cool. We have endeavoured to use every bit of produce because we think it is that good and have incorporated it into our #bunnytoys. Anything leftover is then vacuumed by our b-boys.

    • Rosewood Small Pet Products to Avoid

      I received someone else's order and got to see some of the products from Rosewood only ever before seen in photos. Although I was pleasantly surprised that the products were larger than I envisioned, I am sad to report that my suspicions were confirmed. There was so much unnecessary glue all over the toys, which can cause intestinal blockages and potentially be fatal to rabbits. I wanted to write a bit more about the danger of glue but that will have to come later as I've seen so many stores recently start stocking these products and thought it important to warn about the danger of these toys in hopes of preventing these toys being bought and endangering more bunnies. Please note this is not an exhaustive list, just some products that I had a chance to inspect in person. Carrot Dream Catcher Loofa Hoola Corn Rattle Roller Loofa Toss 'n' Treat Roller
