First Walk...

No, it is not my first walk! Today my husband came home from work and look what he brought.


Yes, little chicks! And that was their first walk, and their first fight.

Though they are very weak they did their best to learn their new world and they tried to scratch and to fly and to chase bugs and got tired very soon.








A little nap on the brothers' shoulders after a long walk.








Just very tired...






They are very funny but I am afraid now I will get less time for cross stitching because I will be chick sitting lol.
I also took some more garden pictures after watering it.












I did some cross stitching today too but not enough to show any progress.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments, I appreciate this.
Happy stitching to everybody.

Thank you for the kind words about my chicks. They are adorable and I love them so much and enjoy watching them.
But I want them to grow and not to stay chicks for ever. I need them to fight the bugs, snakes, etc. which Louisiana is so rich in and which I am afraid so much.
These are not the first chickens we keep, the eggs are very tasty because we feed them to tasty things like vegetables, rice and what they found in the garden. They like strawberries berry berry much too.
How many chicks? Not many, just a few lol. We'd better count them when they are grown chickens. Now I am thinking what names to give to them.
Stay turned!
