The chicken came before the egg.

Researchers at Sheffield and Warwick universities used a supercomputer called HECToR to study chicken eggshells in such detail that they were able to deduce the vital role of a protein in the creation of an egg. The protein, called ovocleidin (OC-17), is produced in the pregnant hen's ovaries, which means that the chicken must have come first, the scientists say.

"It had long been suspected that the egg came first but now we have the scientific proof that shows that, in fact, the chicken came first," said Colin Freeman of Sheffield University, the lead scientist on the project.


I have ALWAYS said that the chicken came first, and now I can prove it... with science! I think I'm going to make fried egg and bagels tonight for dinner.

You're a CC now?

Anyway, I always knew that the chicken came first.

Yeah, no shit the chicken came first. Eggs don't just fall from the sky.

Other things i.e. lizards laid eggs before chickens.

Lol that nugget of common knowledge was hardly enough to qualify you being a smart arse.

F*cking chickens...

EDIT: @post above me, I thought that too. Some reptile could have produced that protein by mutation or something.

Chickens and birds in general originate from reptiles.

Of course the chicken came first. Was there ever any debate?

A similar to chicken species came first, which in turn came from a similar to that species all the way down to being just proteins with an alternating current that could have been caused by radiation from a star etc.

The first chicken was probably just a fucked up Velociraptor.
