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???
