I love Mike the chicken – although my friends won’t believe me of his existence! And it is possible that it could have been faked. Mike the headless chicken survived because his brain stem was abnormally low down which meant that when he lost his head he didn’t die …because his brain stem was intact and controls most of what a chicken does! pretty neat huh?
Here’s the website if you don’t already have it – you could order some merchandise!
I have never heard of Mike the headless chicken although I have seen a video of a headless chicken running around for 30mins. It made me feel a bit queasy though so I don’t think I will be rushing to find out about Mike! I am going to trust that Amy knows her stuff!
