The egg and chicken dilemma was solved by a british team which included one genetic specialist, philosopher, and poultry farmer, claim to solve one of the ancient questions in the world : What came first, the egg or the chicken?
The answer: it was the egg.
The reason is, simple, because of the fact that the genetic material does not change in the course of an animal's life. therefor, the first bird which was what we call today chicken, an event that happen probably in pre-historic times, had to exists previously as a 'chicken' embryo inside the egg.
Professor john brokfield, an expert in evolution genetics from Nottingham University said, to the AP, that this is quite simple, the organism that lives inside the egg has to have the same DNA as the chicken in develops to, eventually.
Therefor, the first living thing that can be said to be a member of this species of animal was that egg.
To this conclusion came also his research associates, Professor David Papinao from King college in London and the farmer, Charles Barns.
Prof. papiano stressed that if a kangero were laying eggs from which an ostrich emerged, then that egg was an ostrich egg, not a kangero egg.
