Mike the Headless Chicken
THIS IS A TRUE STORY, NOT A HOAX!
Ever hear of a headless chicken...that lived? Well, here is the story.
Growing up on a farm, we raised chickens and occasionally had to kill one for out meals. I didn't like the process but it is something that happens.
As far a Mike's story is concerned, a farmer wanted to have a chicken dinner and he chopped off the chicken's head. To his surprise, the chicken did not die and it lived for almost 18 months. The chicken became known as "Mike" and the owner traveled around and fed the chicken with an eyedropper.
This is a pretty amazing story that now touts a festival, movies, videos, artwork and much more! I have never been to the Mike festival but it supposedly has a huge cult following.
It's funny how a chicken can capture the attention of people all over the world!
I hope you have fun with this site and please feel free to leave me some comments!

If you didn't think any kind of animal can live without a head, think again.

The true story of Mike is right here. Much more information that I could've included in this website.
The farmer said, "Well, everybody
likes chicken legs, so I bred a three-legged bird. I'm going to be a
millionaire." When asked how they tasted. The farmer said,
"Don't know, haven't caught one yet."

Chickens are usually tired because they work around the "cluck".
