I am trying unsuccessfully to get this magazine. After frustrating serch I find I cannot subscribe to it.... I also do not seem to be able to get the back issues. I click on the get now link and in the cart I see a generic magazine cover which apparently not the issue cover that I want. I have tried the previous and next links as well hopoing to get the past three issues, only to find three different tabs opened on my computer with the same issue pictured.... PLEASE MAKE THIS A SUBSCRIPTION.... cannot find it on the stands you mentioned.

It would be great if you posted the fact that you cannot subscribe to 'Chickens' rather than have users search hopelessly for a subscribe button
