    Well. That is some story. But it seems that Mike embraced ignorance. Surely an ignorancedenied chicken would succumb to logic and die lke a proper headless bird.

    He wasnt entirely headless but Id call it a major disability. One ear and a brain stem, some life.

    My mother use to tell me stories about when she was a child and they would clip the chicken's legs to a clothes line and cut off the head. This was to let the blood drain. However sometimes the chicken would get free (minus a head) and they would chace it around the yard for a fair amount of time. So the it actually is true, but I wouldn't be able to say for how long without asking her again.
