The imaginatively titled 'Keeping Chickens Newsletter' is a free
backyard chickens magazine that can be read online (or downloaded
as a pdf to be viewed or printed offline) and aims to be a source
of information and entertainment for the chicken enthusiast - i.e.
anyone who has ever kept, or even looked into, keeping chickens!
The success of the Keeping Chickens Newsletter (we've
recently passed our seventh year of publication!) is in large part
due to our wonderful subscribers from all over the world who send
in their coop photos, stories and other poultry related bits and
pieces each month. I don't think any of us would say we were chicken
'experts' but the combined knowledge and sharing of experiences
has proved to be both entertaining and educational.
We are a group of chicken keepers from all over the world so whether you are keeping chooks in Australia, hen keeping in your UK garden or raising backyard chickens in the USA we would love to have you join our community and share ideas, tips and experiences through the newsletter.

Nola Kelsey : Pullet parenthood is as much of an adventure
as child rearing, only with more feces per pound of body weight.
However, I've been reading quite a bit on poultry matters.
[Yes, my coolness just turned over in its grave.] So if I
am correct and I am quite certain I am not, this is how chicken
rearin' goes. Click

Keeping Chickens Newsletter Highlights
Dangers Of Heat Lamps Kristi : I've enjoyed reading your newsletter and seeing
the great stories, tips, and photos your readers share. I
have a tragic story that I want to share with your readers
in hopes that it doesn't happen to anyone else.
Marva L. Weigelt : Before you jump to conclusions, let me
assure you that extravagant executive bonuses will not be
a concern; the Happiest Chicken CEO (fondly known as Big Mama,
No Feathers or less respectfully as Mother Clucker) doesn't
even get a salary, let alone an annual bonus. Click

Willie & Barbara Bell : When the both of them are away
from the pups, she eating or drinking, the bitch outside resting,
and the pups start to yap the hen would go to their aid or
if we were to walk toward the stall when she is out she would
rush ahead of us to protect the pups.

the chickens like the way we raise them! LOL" Bonnie
