Longest surviving headless chicken
Mike the headless chicken
United States ()

On September 10, 1945 a Wyandotte chicken called Mike had it's head chopped off but went on to survive for 18 months. Mike's owner, Lloyd Olsen (US) of Fruita, Colorado, USA, fed and watered the headless chicken directly into his gullet using an eyedropper. Mike eventually choked to death one night in an Arizona motel.
