Wild grasses/crops

Their are hundreds of different grasses and crops available and all are safe to feed. In the photo is oat crop and piggies love it due to its sweet taste, however should not be a main stay hay/grass for them. I often pick these crop type grasses from edges of farmed fields after a harvest or where the crop has grown onto public footpath ways and is unlikely to be used. Never take crops directly from the private field, only from edges or after harvest.IMG_3291.JPG

Common groundsel

Loved by rabbits and guinea pigs. Can be fed to chickens and traditionally to budgerigars too. Found abundantly in gardens, wasteland and bridlepaths. Do not feed plants which have turned an orange colour as this is a sign of fungal disease in the plant.
