Hi Shanna,

I've only recently become a chicken-addict again, and the only general chook magazine I've found is Australasian Poultry, but as it only comes out every two months there is a long wait in between!! :(

Other than that I get the Pekin club quarterly magazine which is also great (if you're into pekins).

I've also heard that Jackie French has a chook book out, but I haven't really looked for it yet. I've seen lots of references to it in other publications.

I'd love to hear what else is out there, especially regular magazines!!

Deb :-D

Hi JT, Some of the issues do have great photos, most of the info is only valid for the UK, but defiantly worth a look






Thanks

Hi Peter16, no we're not, are you looking at joining? it's good to join a club of your interests, although you have that here? Are you thinking of showing in the future?




Thanks
P.A :lol: :lol:

For only $10 a year it would be worth it! do they do a news letter?

I dont thick they have like a club house where you can go to meetings, but they send out 4 newsletters a year and the joining fee is mainly to cover postage costs, oh and you get an exclusive personalised laminated member ship card 8) 8)
P.s i think it would be a fun day out going to a poultry show and to be able to enter my birds would be fantastic, so yeah i would like to do it, ive been looking around but havent found a show ground near by yet...
