Default One ear up hay

My chin doesn't seem to be liking the Oxbow hay I've been buying, so I am thinking of switching it up and trying some other brands. Back when I had rabbits, I used to give the hay from One ear up. I want to buy the four-pound mix and match box so I can try some different kinds. Are all of these safe, and if so, do you guys have any recommendations?

Those are really more with rabbits in mind, those mixes might be ok as a treat, but not as the primary hay. For chins things like clover and dandelion are treats and should limited to a small amount a week. For adult chins alfalfa is also more of a treat hay, they don't need the extra calcium and protein and it can cause issue like kidney can bladder stones if given too often if you already feed an alfalfa based pellet food.
