  4. I read the article on MSN. Is it a true story, or urban legend? Has it ever been proven?

    Its very true. Do a search on yahoo for 'mike the headless chicken'. There is a whole webpage on him as well as a festival each year in his honor.

    Here ya go - did the search - here's his official webpage:

    If it's the same one I am thinking of, he use to take the rooster to different attractions and what not for others to see.
    He feed him with an eye dropper or something like that...

    Wow how could you just leave a chicken like that. Amazes me what people will do for money and that happened in 1945.
