Back in 2014, the game voted to change the Search Cycles back to the original schedule with some changes. To see more detail, Check out the Game Staff policy here.

Search Cycle Policy

February - April (Cycle 1)
May - July (Cycle 2)
August - October (Cycle 3)

A Moratorium is maintained on Weyrlinghood/Search for the Month of December and allows for a month buffer at the beginning of the year, which is an equally busy time as everyone gets back into the swing of things after the Holidays. Generally, it is also encouraged to reserve April and August as 'off' months, with the Hatchings taking place at the end of March/July.
