Rabbit Hole Hay 1st Cutting Timothy Hay Review

Hay

 

We recently moved to a more rural area, and OUT of a subdivision.  Which is great because Goose has more room to play and we have more room for our dogs and a garden, and a few other animals.  This year we added chickens to our list of pets, and they have the added benefit of providing us with eggs.

This is Mailman
This is “Mailman” and one of the hens. At about 6ish weeks.

I had never had chickens, so I did a lot of research, and I knew that they would need an area to nest, and some bedding type stuff to make a nest out of.  We went through A LOT of stuff to find things that they would like to nest and lay eggs in.

They started out laying eggs beside out AC/Heating Unit. That worked until our unit died, and they didn’t like the repairman messing in their area.  Next, they discovered that they could lay eggs in the tomato plants.  That stopped when I started picking the tomatoes. Finally they decided to start laying eggs in their pen. Mostly in the grass clippings, but once the grass clippings would blow or wash away, they would go back to laying in random spots.  So I decided to try some rabbit hay.

I found some timothy hay at rabbitholehay.com that they LOVE.  I got a 1lb box to review, and it has held up to my crazy chickens.  Now, the timothy hay that I got is meant for rabbits, and though I don’t have rabbits any more, I thought it was worth a try for the chickens.

Gerdie
This is the rabbit I had for a very long time named Gerdie.

I got the first cutting, which means the hay is a little more stiff and has more of the seed head things on it.  If I still had my rabbit, this would be great for her teeth, and it would provide her with more nutrition than the 2nd or 3rd cutting.

Overall, I am impressed with the quality of this hay.  My chickens love it.  I do wish I still had a rabbit so that the rabbit could try the hay out, too.

Baby Marohn’s Holiday Gift Guide: Del Sol Coloring Changing Backpack Review and Giveaway

2015 Holiday gift guideChristmas is on it’s way, and fast.  I know this year I am completely unprepared, and I’ve only bought three gifts. To tell you the truth, it seems like everyone has so much that I don’t really know what to get them. I like to think outside the box, and get something that most people wouldn’t think about, and for kids, one thing I like to get for kids is stuff for school.

Now that the school year is halfway over, it seems that, even though parents try to buy things that last, the beginning of the year school stuff is starting to wear out. Backpacks are always a big hit with Goose and my sister’s kids.

Del Sol

Del Sol has come out with the cutest backpacks that I’ve seen in a LONG time.  In true fashion to Del Sol, the backpack changes color when out in the sun too.  Goose just loves that inside out of the sun, Minnie is black and white, but as soon as she goes outside, Minnie turns her normal colors, and she has secret designs hidden in the background that pop out as a surprise.

Not only are Del Sol’s backpacks SUPER cute, but they are also very comfortable to carry.  The shoulder straps, back, and handle are all padded, so that you don’t have to worry about the straps digging into your shoulders or the handle hurting your hand.

 

Del Sol 2015 Holiday gift guide

Goose has been able to fit quite a bit in the Del Sol backpack.  The backpack measures 15″ H x 12″ W x 4″ D.  As far as pockets and compartments, the Del Sol definitely doesn’t have the most I’ve ever seen, but how many does my 4 year old really need?  There is the main large compartment, an accessory pocket on the front, and two mesh pockets on the sides.  She honestly doesn’t need more than that, and if she did, I have a feeling things would get lost.

If Minnie Mouse is not your thing, they have Disney Princesses and a couple of Marvel characters that you can choose from.

Overall, Goose and I love this backpack, and Del Sol would like to give you all a chance to win one!!  You have until November 27th, 2015 at 11:59pm to enter.
