Fancy Fowl Magazine - Over 40 years of Poultry, Waterfowl & Turkeys.

Fancy Fowl Moves Online

To all our loyal and dedicated readers, thank you for your continued support of Fancy Fowl magazine. We know how hard the past few years have been for you, and the challenge of continuing with the same passion for your birds despite the restrictions that have been in place during that time. We won’t lie, it has been really tough this end too – it speaks to Fancy Fowl’s place at the centre of our hobby, of which we are so proud. We can only say again and again, thank you for sticking with us, and particularly to those of you who have supported the magazine with content each and every month.

To ensure the future of the magazine we have made the very hard decision, after a lot of thought, that from November 2023 we will be taking the magazine online only, meaning there will be no printed copies produced.

The devastating effect Avian Flu has had on our beloved Fancy, has meant we have been struggling to sustain the magazine with fewer subscribers and reduced advertising sales. So much so we have been running at a loss in trying to keep the magazine going. We obviously can’t continue like this. Moving the magazine online gives us the opportunity to open Fancy Fowl up to a much wider audience – including globally - and evolve the magazine. We hope you can understand our decision and that you will continue to support us.

We of course appreciate this will be disappointing news to some of you, it is disappointing for us too, but crucially by taking this action we can ensure the monthly production of a magazine we can all be proud of. If you can stick with us for another 12 months, we hope we can demonstrate that what we have planned will still offer you something worth reading and looking forward to every month.
