The link to buy a copy of the Chickens mag goes to a pet mag page. I could not find Chickens on their page. I'd love to read the mag, but it's not available by subscription, electronic delivery, and rediculously difficult to order. I've not seen it on any periodical stand in my area. I'm more than a little frustrated at this point.
