Monks adopt miracle chicken

A headless chicken that survived after being decapitated has been adopted by monks.

The headless chicken made headlines around the world as it survived a beheading, the Daily Mail reports.
According to media reports in Thailand, the kind-hearted monks are from a temple in Ratchaburi Province, Central Thailand.

Very occasionally, chickens survive being beheaded because of an unusual quirk of their anatomy.

The birds’ brains are in their skulls at an angle, so the rear portion that controls automatic functions such as breathing can be left intact if it is beheaded too high up the neck.
