Has anyone here heard of Mike the headless chicken. The story started back in like 1945 ( I think) when a Colorado farmer went out to kill a chicken for his wife to cook for dinner. He grabbed up Mike and chopped his head off . The farmer chop left part of the birds brain and some how tottaly missed the jugular vien. So this bird didnt die. The farmer decided to leave the bird alone to bleed out, and went on about his bussiness later he came back and the bird was still alive, and even trying to peck around like normal chickens do. Baffled the farmer decided to wait and see how long the bird would live, the next day the farmer got up and went out side and the poor bird was out side still alive. this bird lived for quite a while, ( i think about 18 months) with the farmer using an eye dropper to give it nutrients. The chicken made it into The Guenise Book of world records. ( pretty sure I spelled it wrong. ) Any way the town this bird was from holds festivals every year in honor of Mike the headless chicken. You can google Mike the headless chicken and see pictures of him, and get the whole story.
