I know that alfalfa is a no-no... so I would assume the same about hay...

Not sure, though...

I got some bags of timothy hay for free, and I figured the rats might like to play in it, so I put some in a box. They climbed in, walked around in it for a minute, and then opted to play elsewhere. They didn't seem to like it. If you already have some you might try letting them play with it, but I don't think they'd eat it, except maybe a nibble or two to taste. But yeah, definitely not alfalfa hay. I got some of that too, but haven't touched it....anyone need some hay? ^^; I should get rid of it before I'm tempted to get a guinea pig... :D

i use torn up tissue paper. it adds color and Victoria loves to carry it and nest. Also i use cotton fluff for hamsters...Victoria loves that too. But occasionally she'll fight with the big pieces as if it was another rat....

Personally, i think hay is to scratchy for them. especially with my hairless girl, but im sure its been done.
