When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Tend my sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”

Did you know?
- Chickens require very little space, allowing families with small plots of land to maximize what they plant. Chickens help farm production by eating insects, removing weeds and even fertilizing crops.
- When they get going, chickens can run at speeds up to 9 miles per hour. The average human jogs at about 6 miles per hour, so good luck catching a chicken!
- A single chicken lays an egg every 24-26 hours, providing over 200 eggs or chicks per year. In addition to providing food source for a single family, these eggs and poultry can also be taken to market and sold, raising funds for medicine clothing and more.
- While chickens are not capable of sustained flight, they can get off the ground when needed. The longest flight of a chicken on record is an incredible thirteen seconds!
- Scientist believe that chickens are the closest living relative of Tyrannosaurus Rex. We have living breathing, feathered dinosaurs all around us!
