Mike the Headless Chicken

Mike the Headless Chicken of Fruita was a Wyandotte chicken that lived for 18 months after his head had been mostly cut off. The owner fed him with a mixture of milk and water via an eyedropper; he was also fed small grains of corn. Seen here sometime between May 1945 and October 1946, lived for 1½ years after a farmer cut his head off with an ax – but leaving his brain stem intact, which allowed him to live. You go mike!
