The official answer: What came first, the chicken or the egg?

So which came first: the chicken or the egg? British scientists say it is the chicken. Chicken ovaries contain a protein without which a chicken egg cannot be formed. The protein speeds up the development of the hard shell which is essential in protecting the soft liquids while the chick grows inside. The first chicken egg could therefore only have been created inside a chicken. So there you have it. The chicken came first. Who’d’ve thought?
