Good afternoon, 

 

I am still fairly new to this and pretty rubbish at identifying weeds. I saw these while at work earlier, can somebody please help me identify these and tell me if they are safe to feed my torts..

 

Thanks in advance..

Lee, the middle one defo isn't clover.... Looks like bitter cress to me, in which case although it isn't toxic it is part of the 'brassica' family so has to be fed sparingly x x x

I am thinking the bottom one is 'creeping thistle' though not sure. If it is then it is fine to eat but a bit ' Prickly' so torts need to be fed new leaves. To be honest the prickles put me off feeding these weeds x x x I am seriously struggling on my weed walks at the moment, even finding dandilions is tricky.... Yet I pass loads by the roadside which would fill my bag in three handfuls. X x
