The Temple

it is right where you are"

Kindness


"One who is kind is sympathetic and gentle with others.  He is considerate of others' feelings and courteous in his behavior.  He has a helpful nature.  Kindness pardons others' weaknesses and fault.  Kindness is extended to all-to the aged and to the young, to animals, to those low of station as well as the high."  
 -Ezra Taft Benson

Family


"Our Heavenly Father has organized us into families for the purpose of helping us successfully meet the trials and challenges of life.   The home also exist to bless us with the joys and privileges of family associations. Our family is our safety place, our support network, our sanctuary, and our salvation." -Rex D. Pinegar

At the Falling Feather

We have two new additions to our coop...
let me introduce you to Chicken Parmesan (the Rhode Island Red) and Chicken Pot pie (I can't remember what kind of chicken my friend told me she was)... 


They seem to be happy and our other hens,
Kung Pao...


Szechuan,


Nugget (the Buff Orpington) and Gordon bleu,   


Yes, I have a weird sense of humor, what can I say.  And none of this sweet girls are for the stew pot! I love to watch them as they search the farm for bugs and whatnots.  The whatnots being my lettuce in my garden.  The hens have eaten most of my lettuce and spinach but they haven't the taste for my swiss chard as of yet.
They are just fun to watch and give me eggs so I can't get to mad at them for eating the greens!   And so far no bickering between them, which I was a little afraid of when I added Parm and Pot pie. So it is all good here at the Falling Feather.

This is Squeakers, she decided to get a drink out of the hens water as I let them out to free range.
