Chicken Without a Head

1. Mike, the Headless Chicken: (Living 18 months without a head)

 Mike (April 1945 - March 1947) the headless chicken is Wyandotte Rooster that can live for 18 months after its head cut off. After many people had thought him merely as a HOAX, the chicken was brought by the owner to the University of Utah in Salt Lake City to establish its authenticity.
On the day Monday, September 10, 1945, farmer Lloyd Olsen from Fruita, Colorado, was about to prepare dinner and ordered by his wife to find a chicken. That's when Olsen decapitated chickens aged 5 and a half months old named Mike. Olsen used ax escape from blood vessels of the neck, so that most of the vessels of the brain remains intact. Mike had entered in dozens of newspapers and magazines, including Time and Life Magazines. Olsen drew criticism from some quarters for keeping the headless chicken alive. In March 1947, at a motel in Phoenix, Mike suddenly choked and die in the middle of the night.
