    I was wondering what would be the best magazine to subscribe to for the average chicken farmer, and I use the term "farmer" loosely!!!! lol I know of a few but I thought I would get a few different opinions before I spent the money. I have around 20 birds, all chickens but I may be looking in to getting some ducks and geese, maybe even some turkeys, who knows!!!! lol
    Any input would be great!!!!! [​IMG]

    I personally like "BackYard Poultry" magazine. I always find things in there that help me out with my own "chicken farming." (If you could call it that!)

    For the most part the Poultry Press is the benchmark for fowl, this publication tends to lean/cater to the more knowledgable chicken breeder/show enthuisist. Now there are many other publications out there that cater more to the whole trendy/faddish type urban backyard folks with itty bitty toy house coops and who are mainly into cuteness and having fresh eggs to eat. either way their out there for your choosing.

    Quote:Yeah, I guess i'm kinda in between. I don't think I'll ever have show birds, but I'm not into the "trendy" or "urban"part. lol I have a general knowledge base, but as with anything, there is always more I could learn.

    Quote:Naw.... your fine....................... The poultry press is a great source for advertisments for many things, like breeders, supplies, books, and there isn't better source for in depth articles that don't focus on house chickens and hen apron's LOL.
