Thanks the Cryptid Wikia for all of the information

Well, yes, my first blog post is about a phenomenal! You all know about the pesky little Zombie Chicken right? But worse thing is, the Zombie Chicken is truly exist! :o

Don't worry, after a bit of searching, i found out this chicken won't run at crazy speed and peck at your brains. Turns out, it's an inspiration story. If you would like to know about this miracle, stay on :)

This is a story about Miracle Mike. Just a regular rooster, until his owners decided to make a delicios dinner from him. Holding an axe, Mr. Lloyd Olsen swung it, and chop Mike's head off. But the strike missed the jugular vein, leaving one ear and most of the brain stem intact. Therefore, Mike was still able to stand up and walk clumsily, even tried to peck although he can't cause he lost his head. The Olsen shocked, and decided to continue to care permanently for Mike, feeding him a mixture of milk and water via an eyedropper; he was also fed small grains of corn. Mike quickly gained control of his new body :)

Say whaaaaaat?

The bird's owner took him to University of Utah in Salt Lake City and proved that it do exist. Everyone was shocked, and his story spread all over the place and soon, he became famous. He grew from a mere 2 1/2 lbs. to nearly 8 lbs. In an interview, Olsen said Mike was a "robust chicken - a fine specimen of a chicken except for not having a head." Miracle Mike took on a manager, and with the Olsens in tow, set out on a national tour. Curious sideshow patrons in New York, Atlantic City, Los Angeles, and San Diego lined up to pay 25 cents to see Mike. The "Wonder Chicken" was valued at $10,000 and insured for the same. His fame and fortune would earn him recognition in Life and Time Magazines. It goes without saying there was a Guinness World Record in all this. While returning from one of these road trips the Olsens stopped at a motel in the Arizona desert. In the middle of the night Mike began to choke. Unable to find the eyedropper used to clear Mike's open esophagus Miracle Mike passed on.

Yet he's still alive after a meeting with an axe

Mike lived 18 months since beheaded. And people told Mike's story is an inspiration: "It is great to comfort to know you live a normal life, even after you have lost your mind."

Now, there is a annual Mike the Headless Chicken festival that happens every third weekend of May and a statue of Mike was built in Fruita, Colorado.

Some pictures of Mike!

Amazing story isn't it. Zombie Chickens are not really annoying in real life! Thanks for reading this blog, and i'll write even more in the future :)
