These are growing in my outdoor red foot enclosure. Should I remove them? Are they toxic? I don't re all them being here before. I tried to get pics that show them stem and flower and root. Any help appreciated. TIA

Definitely looks like henbit. It's not only edible, some people eat it in salads and make tea from it. I tried it last year and it is a little minty. I haven't tried feeding it to the torts.
