Has this issue (May/June) shipped to subscribers yet?
I remember seeing it on the rack at a local store, but it is sold out now.
I didn't buy it then as I have been waiting to see it in my mailbox.
Then I received the email about the digital editions no longer being produced.
We have been looking forward to reading it, and hope to receive it soon.

I didn't know "Chickens" is a magazine. Thought it's a Book. I might subscribe to it now.
