So I use a 15 oz bag and I soak it in warm water then I drain and let it sit. The aroma really starts to kick in and my big boy comes running. Of course it's cheaper to buy in bulk but I don't care this plus some spring mix and mazzurri and of course weeds is how Jessie got so big and strong. I give him a bag every day and he eats the whole bag in one sitting, there is more hay then you think in that bag. Just thought it's worth a try if your struggling with the hay thing.

Do hatchling like chaff or not chaff?
Hay is for older larger tortoises. Hatchlings should get freshly sprouted young grass, weeds, leaves, and other things.
