I have this weed that grows In my north texas yard. My chickens absolutely love it. Its soft and pretty and my rabbits like it too. For the life of me I can not figure out what it is called though. Can anyone help me?
Woops...looks like I posted a related species in the same genus with the same common name, but with a quick search it looks like they have the same edible uses. For the one Tyler lists they claim that the young leaves are passable for parsley.

It doesnt have any flowers. Sorry those little yellow ones are from a different weed. They look mostly similar. Except the stems are different. This grows in patches but it grows upwards. More like tuffs
The flowers are good for native pollinators, so if you can leave a patch to bloom, that would be helpful. Also, it is an annual and will eventually disappear from your land if you don't let some go to seed. Just control it where you plan to walk, to save your socks, and let it go elsewhere and you should have no problems.
