What came first, the chicken or the egg?
People have struggled with this question for centuries, but now it seems that we have an answer.
Scientists conducted thorough research to investigate the proteins found in egg shells. It was found that the protein, called OC-17, is found in a chicken’s ovaries. This protein is essential for egg shell formation. The egg goes through many stages and one such stage is where the egg shell crystallizes and hardens in order to protect the egg yolk and fluid inside. At this stage the OC-17 comes into play. It is the mother’s ovaries that provide the egg with this essential protein. Thus, it is only possible for an egg to come from a chicken.
Remember, we are only talking about chicken eggs here.
Now that this age-old question has been answered, subsequent research will now focus on the reasons the chicken was crossing the road.
