I have two boar babies (both of them are a little more than 3 months old) and I think I am allergic to Timothy hay. I bought some orchard grass hay when they started to run low on the Timothy, and when I placed a handful of it in their cage, they gobbled it.
They obviously liked it, so I refilled their hay hopper with the orchard grass hay.
They have slowed WAAAAAY down in eating their hay. They are approaching the hay and nibbling at it, but don't seem nearly as interested in eating it as they were when I first gave them some. They still get their pellet food and unlimited fresh water. I give them the appropriate amount of fresh vegetables every day as well.
Is it possible that they just aren't hungry for it yet? Will they eventually start eating it when they get interested enough or should I go back to giving them the Timothy hay and return the orchard grass to the merchant?
