It would be great if you would give people a free subscription to see if they like it or not.

It would be really awesome if you could offer subscriptions even if it were at newstand prices. Please contact me, if you're able to contact me, when and if this becomes available.

I am the proud and very new owner of three laying leghorn (?)hens. I found your magazine at Tractor & Trailer Supply Store and this issue was perfect for me. Especially "Expert Advice" on page 60. We have an almost 5 acre yard in our rural area home and had wanted chickes for a while but worried too much about my ability to keep them and keep them safe. The "parting advice": Don't worry too much; just give chicken keeping a shot" was what I needed! Also "Tools Youu'll Use" on page 14 was great to read. I hope to find all your issues in the future! And thanks for creating this interesting "read" for all of us chicken people.

I just finished your Summer, 2010 issue and was delighted to see the photo on page 52 of a sow, piglet and chickens sharing the same yard. I have wanted to add a feeder pig or two to our one-acre chicken yard, but everyone I ask about it, is sure that the pig will eat/kill the chickens. Your photo makes me think that there may be a way to manage this. I would appreciate any advice that you have to offer.
Thank you
