Tuesday a week ago was the last time I got a good look at my little quail-kids family. That was when there were only three of four chicks here. Needless to say, I feared the worst for the missing baby.
I've only had quick glimpses of the family in the meanwhile, times when I thought and hoped but couldn't be sure that the maybe fourth chick had rejoined the group.
Finally this morning, there they were, Mom & Daddy and all four lovely growing chicks, pecking leisurely around the front entryway.
And not to be overlooked, this little tough guy who came and perched on the aloe to keep an eye on them too.
