You have to use straw, not hay. Straw is golden in color and hay is more green. Hay also tends to contaminate. Hobby/Craft stores like Michaels' have a few inexpensive dif sized chopped straw bales. Otherwise feed stores will have it in bulk.

  Or you can cop a full bale of straw at Lowes for $3.00.  But, Dub has it right,..  That hay will do you No good!   Only headaches and heartaches,......

Unfortunately they are not the same thing, that would make it a hell of a lot easier if they were though.
