Oat hay is the 2nd best according to my vet, so its safe to let him have just that as a hay He actually sent hay sample to a lab to be analyzed, and had the 2nd highest fibre, 2nd lowest protein and fat. SO, good hay compared to timothy hay.

Don't worry too much about his age, it's fine to lower his pellet amount now. Especially if he isn't eatign as much hay as he should. Bunnies are good at making us feel like we are starving them, when we aren't.

Aha, finally a positive update:
He's finally begun to appreciate timothy hay! I think it's because it's closer in texture to oat than orchard is, but he does dislike some of the thicker stalks so I may switch/try oat anyway. It may also be because he's getting used to the flavor because of the Oxbow timothy pellets, which means my secret plan has worked! Mwahahaha...

I mean...

Thanks everyone for your help! And he's definitely not starving... just very very excited when he gets his breakfast pellets.
