I usually use timothy hay so just wanted to make sure orchard grass hay is ok too. lol Mine like to eat hay sometimes and I also use it as bedding in the coop.

They should make sure if it’s organic if they want to pay for organic hay. If they aren’t currently buying organic and don’t want to, there’s nothing different about orchard grass that would require it.

And yes, orchard grass hay is fine for the flock!

Yes. I just like organic products. Don't mind me.

I've given my chickens this during winter season.

They have since renamed it or Orchard grass wasn't available at the time it was harvested.
