Timothy Hay for Guinea Pigs in Bales

We were lucky enough to have someone who surrendered their guinea pigs to us give us a bale of timothy hay. It's got to be a good 40-50 pounds. We have used it for a few weeks now and have used about a third of it for the rescue. At some point we will have to get more, but where?

Well luckily enough there are local farms that sell it in bales for very cheap, $2-$10 each, and we found them right on Craigslist. I just wanted to let others know that it is out there, and it is cheaper than any store. Check Craigslist, ask anyone who sells Hay on there if they can direct you. If no one there can you should call the local feed store. Google lets you do that simply by putting your location and feed store in search.


  1. I have a couple of blog posts on finding local hay:

  2. I agree. Local hay by the bale is your best bet!

  3. Great - I'll have to check that out!

  4. Thanks Silverbeat, coming to check you out. I need to get another bale soon.


Special Notice:

Guinea Pigs are very social animals. If you are considering adopting one, please consider having more than one for improved health and personality.
