A big chicken party. That's what Erin Moshier of Green Hill Farm called the Maryland Poultry Swap & Farmers Market on Saturday at her family's farm on Mondell Road in Sharpsburg. A broad, macho-looking Wishard Bronze turkey named Harry roamed the spacious farm, gobbling loudly and agreeably whenever attendees laughed. Chickens of all stripes ogled shoppers from coops under tarps, then turned away seemingly unimpressed. Shoppers and vendors, on the other hand, were inspired with the array of birds, from Bantam Cochins and peafowl to a White Peking duck on a leash rocking a hot pink diaper.
