I agree with Karen. My family (husband and 2 boys) keep asking me what kind of chicken is that? I wish I had the answer to some of them. On top of making it look like I know what I'm talking about it saves time trying to fnd it on line in case we want to add them to our flock. I love the magazine by the way.

I wish you would put the breed of the chickens when you post a picture in an article. There is a picture of a chicken in Kristina Mercedes Urquhart article in your July/August issue that I wish I knew what breed it was. I'm new at the different types of breeds and don't recognize certain ones.
