D o you believe that a chicken lived without head? For more than one year! Yes, it actually happened. 70 years ago, a chicken named Mike lived with a severed head. O n September 10, 1945, farmer Lloyd Olsen Colorado, United States, was planning to eat supper with his mother-in-law. His wife Clara sent to him out to poultry to get a chicken. After choosing a well-fed five-month-old chicken, he swings his ax to cut off, its head and let it bleed as usual. Head of chicken fell off, but it lived. Olsen watched as the chicken, after the first moment of uncertainty, continued to stand, moved through the corral and produce noise through its severed head. Olsen feels sorry for the chicken, so he killed another chicken for supper.
