George And Wilma Buy Hens



In Osceola on Monday, January 20, 1936, Dale’s diary says that George and Wilma Casey (Helen’s sister) bought 46 Leghorns and 14 Heavies.  White Leghorns lay large white eggs practically every day.  Heavy breeds have thicker bodies and denser feathers, better suited to cold climates and more likely to continue laying eggs through the winter.  The White is above left, and the Heavy is above right.
