The comments on the Egg-citing Guessing Game are now closed. And what a lot of guessers there were! So many of you were so CLOSE, but only ONE of you was RIGHT!
There were 65 farm fresh eggs in the bowl, and every one of them was gathered on Monday of this week. Until today, that was the highest egg collection day of the week!
The one and only correct guess for Monday's bowl of eggs was submitted by Mary Campbell:My guess is 65. I was going to take 57 but that was taken several times.

Mary, get in touch with me and I will mail your prize right away!
Seems as though the ladies had a little competition today to see if they could beat their score, and sure enough, they did! They have smashed their previous record by 9 eggs!! I've collected 74 eggs so far today, and the day's not over yet... there's still a chance that I'll find one or two more eggs when I'm locking up the girls for the night.
Update on today's count: Sure enough, I found 2 more eggs while I was locking up the girls for the night. That brings today's total to a WHOPPING 76 eggs! I'm flabbergasted!
I went out to the hen house with the video camera today, and took some short videos. Enjoy!
