This was the first time I have used the hay cube from Natural by Rosewood pet products. I thought it was very reasonably priced at around £6 and is essentially a cardboard box covered in hay with heart shaped holes on the sides and filled with hay.
So no it's nothing really ground breaking and I have made similar toys for my pets before but without the added hay stuck on the outside. Having said that it's a great addition to the naturals range further promoting the importance of hay. It's also great for those who may not feel confident to make what may seem to some to be a really simple interactive hay feeder.
Only time will tell how long this would last, I am optimistic that once the hay inside has been depleted it will still be useful enough to refill with different hays and forages, needless to say, as it's made of card, don't leave it outside and don't let it get wet.
This was my piggies first meeting and after giving them some time to figure each other out I put the cube in and is was a instant hit, they were both interested in it both nibbled at it until it was time to take it out. the next test will be to see if they're are still interested in it the next time it goes in the run with them and what my rabbit Bonnie will make it.
Overall a good product, though you could make one yourself if you have the inclination. I'll keep you posted.
