The ol' Chicken or the Egg Debate has been solved
The oldest question has finally been answered, what came first, the chicken or the egg? A team of made up of a geneticist, philosopher and chicken farmer claim to have found an answer. It's the egg!
The reason, genetic material does not change during an animal's life. Therefore the first bird that evolved into what we would call a chicken, probably in prehistoric times, must have first existed as an embryo inside an egg.
