Which Came First?

Which Came First? The Chicken or the Egg?

Apparently, this question has been pondered by scientific minds for some time now and they may be getting closer...

It’s the age-old question that has puzzled the finest minds for thousands of years — which came first: The chicken or the egg? Now, scientists claim to have finally discovered the answer to the conundrum — it’s the chicken which came first.

A team from University of Sheffield and University of Warwickhas found that a protein called ovocleidin (OC-17) is crucial in the formation of eggshells.

I know that there are other ideas about this out there. I'll come around periodically and update this post with them so we can have a conversation about them
