I want to know if this stuff is ok for my hens to eat.... its got frilly edges on the leaves, looks quite tall and spindly, and the flower bits are wee balls with yellow fluff on. Does this ring a bell with anybody ?

    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.
