Oookay! Before you start wondering just why a headless chicken is supposed to be a daily reminder of why we like it here, I’ll cut to the chase and tell you why. Truth of the matter being, this is probably the most resilient chicken (actually I think it’s a rooster) which has ever pecked around the green earth, and provided we look past the headless part of it, I think it can offer a great example concerning will of living. Granted, Mike the headless chicken could hardly do any pecking at all, back in his glorious days; however, it did managed to survive without a head for over 18 months, and it even grew larger — from a mere 2.4 to 8 lbs.
Amazing, isn’t it? This bizarre frolicking bird has become quite popular in his day; I’d actually read about him before, but since today I found an official-looking website detailing his peculiar story, I figured I might as well cut him a slice. Head out towards this place, and you’ll learn everything there is to know about this kind, loving, headless bird.
