The story began when Clara's mother was joining them for dinner and Lloyd gonna grab a chicken for the meal.Lloyd knew that Clara's mother loved the neck of the chicken. So, he picked a young rooster and cut off the chicken's head. However, instead of dying, the headless rooster stumbled around for a moment, shook off Lloyd's family, and continued on his new life in a merry way.
Lloyd was shocked, but he decided to see if it can live until tomorrow, and simply selected another chicken for dinner that night.
To find out how the chicken survived decapitation, Lloyd took Mike with him and traveled 250 miles to the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.The professors there determined that the ax had missed Mike's jugular vein and a clot had stopped Mike from bleeding out. Most of Mike's brainstem was also intact, which allowed him to continue living.
