Timothy hay with no additives.
Alfalfa should also be added to a hamster’s diet. Not only does it help the digestive process by supplying roughage, but hamsters will also use it as a good healthy nesting material. Alfalfa also contains a good source of calcium for your pet to insure healthy bones and bone growth.
Guinea Pig (Cavies) Diet:
For young Guinea pigs under the age of 4 months and pregnant or lactating mothers, Alfalfa hay is also recommended. For those cavies, you could mix half Timothy and Alfalfa. Since Alfalfa hay is too high in calcium, it should only be given to adult cavies as an occasional treat. Chewing hay is also important. Like rabbits, the molars in guinea pigs are constantly growing and must be ground down by chewing. Constant chewing on hay promotes healthy and normal wear on their molars. Treats and chew sticks are not efficient at wearing the teeth.
A Chinchilla’s diet consists of hay, chinchilla pellets and water. Timothy hay is perhaps the best kind. Always make sure the hay has no weeds or anything that could possibly kill your chin. Alfalfa is also another alternative but due to it’s high protein content it needs to be alternated with Oat, Wheat & Barley Hay or another low protein high fiber grass hay.
A rabbit’s diet should be made up of good quality pellets, fresh hay, (Alfalfa, Timothy or Oat, Wheat & Barley), water and fresh vegetables. Anything beyond that is a “treat” and should be given in limited quantities.
Pellets should be fresh, and should be relatively high in fiber (18% minimum fiber). Do not purchase more than 6 weeks worth of feed at a time, as it will become spoiled. Pellets should make up less of a rabbit’s diet as he or she grows older, and hay should be available 24 hours a day.
When shopping for vegetables, look for a selection of different veggies. Look for both dark leafy veggies and root vegetables, and try to get different colors. Stay away from beans, corn and rhubarb.

Alfalfa King Company Product Background:
Alfalfa King is a family owned and operated company. The family farm, the Bill Hartman Ranch in Fish Lake Valley, Nevada had been quietly producing alfalfa and other grass hay since 1970: a gold crown hidden in the tall grass. We provide quality alfalfa, timothy and other grass hays for small animals. Our roots are deep like the alfalfa we have grown for over 30 years.
Our experience, our climate, our location and our process sets us apart from other small animal hay companies. We grow in a high altitude, arid desert on the Eastern slopes of the White Mountains of Western Nevada. Our hay is hand-packed with each pound scrutinized for quality and freshness. And our hay is "double" compressed, a process which takes air out while locking in freshness. About half the size and twice the value of those other hays, Alfalfa King makes premium quality priority one.
Alfalfa King's products are a culmination of three generations farming the land. As farmers, we work hard to cultivate and harvest our hay. Cutting when the plants reach a certain maturity, carefully turning the windrows of hay so it dries evenly before it is baled. We know that once the hay has cured, further exposure to sunlight bleaches nutrients from the hay. The packaging standard of loose hay in a clear plastic bag provides little or no protection against ultraviolet light.
