    I set them so that they would hatch on the waxing to full moon, as my friend instructed me to do...
    so, we shall See!!!
    I have 11 Blue Marans that were from a BYC'r, shipped, one was broken, I put wax on but will assume that one is a gonner...
    and 11 of my own eggs, half Black Copper Marans and half Welsummers...
    I'm hoping that the old Farmer's Almanac thought is right, that the strongest hatches are on the waxing full moon!!!
    so, are you with me???

    I'm with you but just doing some mix of basic chickens to test out incubator for future Marans. A little concerned as what I thought was my best thermometer says low but the other two say fine, so we shall see.

    I am with y'all too. I set 44 call duck eggs. First time with calls so we will see what happens. The owner of the calls said she thinks that only about 1/2 are viable eggs so we will see some of those eggs are mighty tiny compaired to my BIE's. I like to hatch so she gave me the stress. Oh wait I said that I like to hatch....

    Good Luck to everyone!!!
