May 19 – Mike the Headless Chicken Day



~ Darcie Raeppy Mike the Headless Chicken Day! This is a day to celebrate Mike, a chicken that was prepared to be killed for dinner, when as Lyod Olsen chopped off Mike’s head, he missed the stem of the brain. Oh, the head was gone, all of it, but because a chickens reflexes lie in the stem of the brain, Mike was able to survive. For 18 months the chicken lived with special care – being feed water and grain via an eye dropper and given all the attentive awe one can expect given the living state of a headless chicken.
