You have come to the right place in our Degu webshop for hay for your Degus! Hay is very important to Degus. This is because Degus has a so-called 'gag stomach'. Their stomach is not very muscular and therefore cannot independently transport the knitted food to the next part of the intestine. This is supposedly taken over by the following food portions. This also explains why Degus eat many small portions of feed per day on average. Their diet consists mainly of fiber!

The so-called yeast chamber is thanks to Degoes's large appendix. This is where the fine dietary fiber of the hay goes. There they are converted into proteins, vitamin B and vitamin K by special bacteria.

Degus have a clear gnawing need. Therefore, they mainly need a structured fiber-rich hay. The hay is not only used as food, but also mainly to meet the gnawing needs. A high-quality hay can be recognized by 6 points.

  • Fragrance . Hay should smell fresh. When the hay smells dusty and musty, it can contain mold. This is not healthy for both animal and owner.
  • Feeling . The hay should consist of long, crispy blades.
  • Sight . The hay should be green in color. Yellow or gray hay has been improperly dried or stored and a large part of the healthy nutrients has already been lost.
  • Modern drying . Fast, gentle drying ensures that mold is avoided and nutrients are retained.
  • Avoid poisonous plants . A responsible hay producer knows his country and knows what to look out for. Regular monitoring of poisonous plants is necessary.
  • Untreated nature reserves. A high diversity of herbs in the hay is very healthy. It is also important that nature is protected.
