Lucerne hay is a legume hay that is a power feed and not suitable for daily consumption. It is very high in nutrition and must be controlled, a hand full twice a week is sufficient. The value of lucerne for all chinchillas is that it is a rough hay that is extremely effective for filing down the back-molar teeth of chinchillas. For breeders, it gives lactating females extra nutrition and it stimulates milk production. Unlike with grass hay, more is not better. It is perfectly safe and recommended when fed twice a week in small quantities, but will lead to obesity if overfed.
