In a few years Wamego banks are going to be overloaded with money. A number of amateurs have bought a few hens and the results go something like this. Twenty hens will lay eggs and hatch over one hundred eggs per year. Next year we will have 2,000 hens who will lay and hatch out 20,000 eggs. Next year they will pay the German war debt. Some pipe dream and some chickens. The Wamego Reporter, Wamego, Kansas.  May 13, 1915.  (c) Transcribed by Janeice Crosson for the Kansas Council of Genealogical Societies, Inc.
