    well from what i know in judging hay in ffa and hay for my horses you want a hay that is leafy, and you also want a reall green hay and one that has a real strong hay smell to it i would go with a hay that has alot of alfalfa and you dont want lots of weeds in it like any yellow or white flowers although if you know what clover looks like that is also good in hay and wouldn't hurt you also dont want a brown hay

    any more qestions or if i didnt cover something or answer your qestion completly i would be glad to help further:)[​IMG]

    Favorite photos of peafowl other than fanning is when they are in flight with their trains! It will be more beautiful when his train is fully grown. Right now it's about 3 feet and still growing!

    Last year he had 4' 6" long train so if statistics are true it should be 5' this year and 5' 6" next year and that will be as long as his train will grow will be 5' 6" if statistics are true. Usually they don't always prove true but sometimes they do.
