Today we went to the annual poultry swap at the Schaghticoke Fairgrounds. I have been excited about this for weeks. This was where we were going to get our baby chicks. We brought home four little beauties – Black Australorps around 3 weeks old. They are a hearty, productive breed known for their sweet temperament and beetle-green sheen on their black feathers. We also supported the local 4H with a coffee & muffin purchase, pet some baby goats, saw the dairy princess AND a baby pony, and brought home some local Grade B maple syrup from Hoosick Falls as well as some handmade lavender and vetiver soaps.

Today was a great day.
