British scientists believe they have cracked the answer to one of the most enduring riddles of all time.
According to researchers it was the chicken that came first because a protein required for the formation of an egg can only be found inside the chicken's ovaries. "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 Dr. Colin Freeman.
"It is an age-old riddle that has perplexed generations: Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Now British scientists claim to have finally come up with the definitive answer: The chicken."
