All year round I give my birds a selection of green food including chick weed and dandelion. You must be very careful when collecting these types of greens as in some cases they may have been sprayed with insecticide by local authorities If your not absolutely sure then don't feed them to your birds as there is a great risk of fatalities by feeding greens that have been sprayed. If these types are not available, water cress is an excellent alternative and a much safer choice, it can also be given in the winter months when the summer greens are not available. I have a very good farm shop local to me who provides as much as I want at a very reasonable price.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
