    Didnt really look into the size much as had nothing at the time to compare it to but this is a BIG bag The rabbit is ok with it but she isnt as interested in it as other hays Ive used and only sometimes lies on it or interacts with it

    I use this for my chickens bedding it is lovely straw SO much cleaner and dust free compared to the stuff I used before I have hay fever and this stuff hardly makes me sneeze at all it is also chopped up into smaller bits which is much easier to use rather than long strands I am very happy with this straw

    The truth is that I do not know how it will perform It is being used to cure a silk weed problem in my pond and as a layer under my strawberries but barley straw was essential and so far it looks ok

    I love this straw great value and lasts ages have tried loads of different straw and this is by far the best not cut too fine as with most straws which means my guinea pigs can snuggle up in it without it flattening down

    Theres not a great deal of pet shops in my town so I do not have a huge selection when it comes to my bunnies things. After initally buying their hutch a bag of straw hay etc when I first got my bunnies I came across this site and seen the great prices for XL bags I thought I would give it a go and ordered two bags because even if they were the same size as the bag I'd bought they were still a couple of 's cheaper. When I'd ordered the straw there was no mention that it was out of stock and just assumed that it would arrive in about 3 days so was very dissapointed when it never turned up as I'd used the last of my straw in the last hutch clean meaning I had had to go out and buy another bag from the pet shop. However when the straw finally did arrive I was very pleased. They really are XL bags and very compressed. There is just no comparrison with the bags I had bought from the pet shop. Huge bag, dust free, cosy, very high quality and apparently pretty yummy too. Smells great and lasts ages just shame it took so long to arrive last time. Will definitely be getting again before I run out this time. The bunnies wouldn't be best chuffed if we went back to the other pet shop stuff.

    I have just received my second order of Pettex Compressed XL Bale Barley Straw. I absolutely love your barley straw as do my little micro pigs Ethel and Ivy. They are always taking it outside to spread out to use for sun bathing on! In the evening they drag it back in to make a big cosy bed. When they get up in the morning they come running out with what looks like big hay stacks on their heads! - it seems to go everywhere with them. They also find it very yummy and love to eat it at the same rate as I am putting it into their house. It's just as well you squeeze so much into your bags. I would also like to comment on the fact that I have seen a lot of straw in my life but every bale I open is of optimum quality. Each one lasts for about 3 weeks. I am also amazed at how fast you get it to my front door. I ordered one afternoon and the doorbell rang the next day! Many thanks for the excellent service. I also couldn't find this product cheaper anywhere else!

    I ordered 2 of these as I didn't think they would be very big. I was wrong. They are twice the size, cheaper and much better quality than the straw I had been buying from my local pet shop. Delivery was very fast. Will definitely buy again.

    This straw has a lovely fresh smell. My baby mini lop rabbit likes to eat it and I use it as an indoor nest for his little house where he sleeps. After 1 weeks' use it still smelt fresh.

    in the past i have been wary of the straws i buy as one of my rabbits nearly lost a foot on some straw that wrapped around it, this however is easily spread and does not have large clumps, and is also nice and soft for the rabbits to lay on.
