Hay products for guinea pigs
So in this article, I am including four products where you can place hay inside or are made up of hay. These kinds of items will provide so much enrichment and make it a bit different for the guinea pigs to eat their hay. I have not tried all of these items, but I have picked based on how safe they look to me and how good other customer reviews are on them.

This is a product I have used with my syrian hamster, so it was the smaller version. My hamster Henry just loved it. Looking at the reviews on Amazon UK, guinea pig owners have said how much the piggies enjoyed them. I wouldn’t give them this everyday because they will be eating too much carrot, which is full of sugar, so once a week is best. The roof is covered in the carrot and then the walls have edible card covered with hay.
This is an excellent product for them to go up onto and really get them using their teeth. It’s a nice hiding place as well. The measurements are 27 by 20 by 18cm. Beware this could be destroyed quite quickly.
I have done a review on a HayPigs product and was impressed, so I have decided to include this hay feeder that they sell. Available on the Pets at Home website. Measuring 23 by 22 by 12cm, is a circus themed wagon that can hold any type of hay inside. The guinea pigs will love pulling the long stems out between the bars that are well spaced and keep them entertained. It’s all closed up properly and made with safe materials.
Rosewood Naturals Chill N Snooze Small Pet Bed
It’s a perfect bed to place hay into, to make an even more comfortable experience. Made out of hyacinth and rattan, they are safe for guinea pigs to chew. If they have trouble getting in through the opening, just place a fleece pad under, so they can walk up. It measures 33 by 26cm and could fit two. I like the look of this, because it’s a nice natural product.
A ladybird pattern bed made from the comfy material of fleece. Nice and cosy for them to sleep in and you can make place a small layer of hay inside. It’s reversible to have the red on the outside and the ladybirds for the inside. There is wadding to soak up urine. You can choose to have the bed with the wall all the around or to have an opening. Two removable pads are included, so they can be washed separately from the bed. Measurements are 26cm diameter and 10cm tall for the walls. It’s a lovely handmade product made right here in the UK and can be purchased from Etsy.
