Just ordered a ton of hay (17 bales) for my duckies for winter. I plan on using it in their run so they can keep their feet warm as needed and for wind protection. I called a local farmer who sell hay for livestock. The variety is mind boggling. Alfalfa, oat, rye, not to mention first cut, grassy mix, you name it. It can be very confusing. What do you guys get for your ducks? I went for the rye hay, because it was the cheapest and is not being used as feed so much. The guy was really nice and he will deliver on Monday for only 15 dollars. That is quite reasonable considering he has to drive at least 30 minutes to get here. So one ton with delivery will cost me 95 dollars.
