Mike The Headless Chicken
Mike the Headless Chicken was 'born' in 1945 in Fruita, Colorado. He was one of a number of chickens to be killed for food.. The actually slaughter by his owner Lloyd Olsen went a bit wrong and 'Mike' survived, without a head. He lived two years without his head!
It is assumed that a big enough portion of brain stem remained and that Mike just had a lot of will power. With the feeding assistance of his farmer owner Mike survived and actually went on to be a celebrity touring the country and appearing in newspapers and magazines.
