Hi Diane,

We are glad to here your interest in Chickens magazine. It is not yet available for subscription as it is only published quarterly. If that is to change, we will post updates on this site, so please continue to visit!

Get busy with allowing us to subscribe to the Chickens Magazine! We live in a small town in Alberta and it is hard to find this great magazine!
