I read this here: http://www.almanac.com/content/setting-chicken-eggs-moons-sign Those born under a waxing Moon, in the fruitful signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, are healthier and mature faster. To ensure that chicks are born during these times, determine the best days to "set eggs" (to place eggs in an incubator or under a hen.) To calculate, find the three fruitful birth signs on the Moon's Sign Calendar in The Old Farmer's Almanac Using only the fruitful dates between the new and full Moons, count back 21 days to find the best days to set eggs. I don't have a Farmer's Almanac. Could someone tell me the dates for 2012?
