The website I'm redirected to in order to purchase a copy of Chickens magazine is a nightmare! It takes forever to find the magazine on there (the link from this page just takes me to the main page) and it doesn't give me the option of purchasing back issues, just the current issue. (sigh) I was really looking forward to give a set of these magazines as a Christmas gift.

I would really love to be able to subscribe to the Chickens Magazine. It has been a great asset and full of info for me as I just started my own backyard flock.
