blush.gif By the way there are contradictions on dock leaves,the breeder put dock leaves on my torts feeding chart which i gave during last year and he enjoyed but since reading and learning alot more i have come across that they are high in oxalic acid and are poisonous,some people i have spoken to have given there torts this and they enjoy and yet others say they will not eat as it is bitter to there taste buds and a small amount will not hurt and some say not to give at all so i'm totally making sure and not giving any at all to be on the safe side.

I was told NOT to feed dock leaves.... so I don't! There are plenty of other weeds out there if you're not sure wink.gif

blink.gif Hi Dawn,
I no longer give dock leaves it was just that the breeder put it on my list of foods to give,i have a long list of edible weeds that my H loves.
