A video of three children in Afghanistan caught while walking with chicks in their pockets has brought smiles to the faces of netizens.
The undated 33-second video shared by Twitter user Qudsia Qanbary (@qudsia_qanbary), who says she’s a maths teacher from Afghanistan, shows three boys walking when a man stops them and asks what’s in their pockets.
Startled, one of the boys looks at one of the others before pulling out the little chick. Then, his friend also pulls one out of his pocket. They are then seen walking away with the little birds. The tweet claimed that the chicks had been stolen by the two boys.

The video delighted many online, with many netizens saying it was impossible not to let the children go after seeing “such cuteness”. Many defended the children’s actions and said they simply picked the birds to keep as pets.
What if the chicks couldn’t find there way home and they mistakenly walked into their pockets thinking it’s home or they are probably helping the chicks get to their crib. These kids are hereby discharged and acquainted of all acquisition, they are free to go.

I love them, the cuteness, the guilt, Baarakallah. May Allah bless their lives and make them sources of happiness for their parents and society.

He did not take one coz he does not have pocket in his shirt. So he asked the other two to put in their pockets. 😂😂😍

Very cute kids. Should have just given them the responsibility to take care of the chicks & come back to feed them & play with them. Then they will earn one and learn a valuable lesson.

In 2019, a little boy from Mizoram became an internet sensation after he accidentally ran over a chick and then took the bird to a hospital. Although the neighbour’s chick didn’t survive, little Derek Lalchhanhima won hearts online with his gesture.
