Vitakraft® Orchard Grass Soft Stemmed Grass Hay
It's not the best but it's pretty close!
The first Orchard Grass I bought for my 2 male guinea pigs was what I would consider top quality from a top quality brand (but it was from online so the shipping cost begins to add up fast). I've been trying to find the same quality since they LOVED that one so much locally to save some money but so far I haven't found it. I decided to give this one a try as I've tried all the brands my local store carries and neither myself or my boys have been impressed. Most of it is out in the yard because they wouldn't eat it. This one was actually very fragrant and soft like the first I had bought that they loved. While I was loading each of their hay bags they were drawn to the fragrance and my picky eater piggy actually stood up against the bag and began to munch away at the handful of orchard grass I was pulling out of the bag. He couldn't wait which is a VERY big compliment!
The only thing I dislike about this one is that most of the pieces are on the shorter side which makes loading their hay bags a bit more difficult and a bunch more messy. I'm actually allergic to Timothy hay, not severely but somewhat, and want to switch them to Orchard Grass since they love it so much but this won't be the kind I can do that with. I still mixed this with their long strand Timothy Hay so that they get the longer strands but they still get to have a bit of variety which I think they should have in their diets. Still, this could be the one I stick with to mix with their Timothy hay. It was a surprise but after filling both of their large sized fleece hay bags I only used 1/4 of the package. That's an AMAZING value compared to the others I've purchased, even the first one they liked.

Soft and Fluffy
I got this for my bunny a few days ago and it was her first time having hay. She really likes it. Its soft and fluffy! The strands are cut a little short for my taste but she does not care. My bunny loves the hay and I love the price! No dust unless its on the bottom!
