    Just curious. We plant by the moon. Wondering if it works with eggs, too. Thanks & have a great day!

    I set mine according to the farmers almanac and the last two hatches have been very good. Tried setting against dates recomended by the almanac and did bad. The farmers almanac I use shows the best days for crop planting, butchering, harvesting, egg setting etc. It shows the moon cycles on the almanac so I am sure it deals with it. I looked at the alamanac and it says the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of March will be the best days for setting eggs under hens or placing in incubator so I will begin gathering mine Sunday to incubate.
