Hobby Farm is one of my favorite magazines. I noticed the latest issue has been on the magazine stand at Lowes for a couple of weeks. When can I expect to receive mine in the mail? It looks like there are some really good articles in this issue and I am anxious to read it. Thanks.

Thanks for your interest in the cover chicken. We've received many inquiries about the variety. The chicken was given to the photographer as a chick, and we believe that it is a cross-breed because it doesn't demonstrate the characteristics of one particular variety.
