    On November 10th at 3:18PM the Moon will be full and according to the Old Farmers Almanac, the 10th through the 12th are the best days to set eggs for November. Now I just happen to be getting my Silkie eggs from CJ's Exotics on Wednesday and my D'Uccle is laying eggs, So I will be setting both at this time. Unfortunately I will be at work at 3:18 pm so will have to do it at 4:18PM. Does anyone want to join me. I know there are a few D'Uccle and Silkie peeps out there, lets plan a hatching party. Also will be trying to obtain some Marans eggs at Ohio Nationals to set on the evening of the 12th. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I reeally hope I get my eggs on time to set them on time! Especially after what's looking like a failed hatch. [​IMG]

    Are there 'best' times on the 11th or 12th to set them?

    Thanks for the links!

    The eggs are supposed to ship this week. If there're here, I'm totally in.

    [​IMG] The more the merrier. I only have one D'Uccle hen and I think she is beautiful. She has 3 boyfriends, and possibly a 4th, that keeps sneaking over to her house to sleep. [​IMG]
    The Silkie eggs were shipped today, from PA and should be here tomorrow or Wednesday. 6 D'Uccle eggs some are getting a little too old to set on the 10 th but what the hey, I'm going to set all her eggs to see how long they are good for. First one I collected was on the 28th of October (I got 2 robin eggs from her won't set those) What eggs did you buy?

    Well, I just set 48 eggs including polish, buckeyes, lavender orpingtons, silver Sussex and light Sussex. But I can set more on the 10th:)

    I'm hoping to get some gold Lakenvelders. Just 6 eggs though, and it's a gamble with shipped eggs. [​IMG]

    Ahhh to late to order anything and the only bird laying, sort of is my moulting EE. Wonder if she'll give me a coupleof eggs by then. Otherwise I have to wait till everyone has finished their moult and rested, so I can add lights.

    hmmm want can I find. I need to go check the quail pens!

    Oh how I know. I set 10 Black and Blue Mottled and got 2 chicks. I'm happy though. I like it when I only get a couple. Its my evil plan to be able to hatch all winter. [​IMG]
