The Great Egg Race

The City Hen egg count, as tallied on the official scorecard (the coop door) stands at 119:

Mabel the Prolific: 50
Marguerite the Middle Child: 44
Goldie the Broody Girl: 25

Eggs dropped on the kitchen tile by yours truly: 3
Eggs carefully set on ground outside coop for only a moment–and then accidentally stepped on by yours truly: 2
Eggs dropped on kitchen tile by yours truly’s sister followed by moment of sheer guilty hands-on-cheeks, silent-scream mortification: 1

There are just never enough eggs.
