Hi honey, try and get her some weeds, this will sort it out. How much of the lambs lettuce and rosso are you giving her each day and how old is she?:)

She is about 2.5 yrs old and she has been getting like 3 leafs on a morning and a couple of leafs of lolo rosso.
Can get some bishops purse from my walk with my dog and try some of that. Will give it a good wash before I feed it to her.

Too much salady foods will make tortoise poo's runny. They need more fibre. Variety is needed.
Weeds are out there but you must look for them.

I agree with Amy their are weeds out their you just have to look for them. I mix romainan, little gem, cos lettuce, greens, chinese lettuce with weeds and give it to my horsfeilds covered in limestone flour mixed with nutrobal.

You should be able to find some weeds for 1 tort, I nearly flipped when I saw you mention Lambs ears, their is a plant called that and I'm not sure if it is safe. Dandelions are popping through ATM too

There is a weed guide with photo's to help you recognise them. can I just say be careful where you pick them, doggy walks and road side polution must be avoided
