I am ignorant to why someone wanting to put together a very good magazine such as this one would make it so very difficult for people to get it in their hands. I hope soon you offer a subscription.

Love the magazine but hard to find locally in Tucson. Ordering on website is confusing as there are links to Fall 2011 issues (add to cart) as well as current Jan/Feb 12 issue (add to cart). But when you add to cart, it doesn't say which issue(s) are in the cart, only that you have 2 issues. I'd order but don't want 2 of the same issue. Definitely would love a subscription.

I would like to know how to subscribe to the Chickens Magazine. I can't seem to find anything that tells me this. I found the latest issue in K-Mart while shopping - I love it!
