Once upon a time in 1945 there was a couple who owned a farm in Colorado. Lloyd Olsen would spend afternoons chopping off chicken heads, while his wife Clara would look over their cleaning. The two-person assembly line produced the same results everyday: some 50-60 chickens readied and delivered to the meat market. But on 10 September, normalcy of the routine broke when despite being beheaded by Lloyd, a chicken refused to die.
As related by Troy Waters, the couple's great-grandson, the chicken stood up and began walking about the lot of dead chickens. As surprised as they were, Lloyd and Clara decided to place it in an apple box on the back porch, unsure of what they would do about it. Little did they know that the fowl would not die for the next 18 months.
