So fudge used to have this weird thing she used to do with the hay, holds it long ways and like uses her teeth to like into put into Strands , about 4 days she’s just completely stopped? Do I be weird? That it’s stop.. I did notice like 3 days she did like thing with her mouth you know when you get something stuck in your teeth, hasn’t done it since, , she’s eating and being weird has normal but it’s just that behavior that’s seem to have stopped or she’s not doing it when I’m around ,I’m worried honestly, also the other degu hazel is Booked in for dental appointment tomorrow
Reggie does the same with her hay, so did Bumblebee. The reason is so they can get at the sweet strand in the centre of the hay. It's possible that the hay she currently has in her cage, especially if it's near the bottom of the bag, doesn't have the strand she's after.
