The egg&hen riddle has been solved. a British crew consisted of one magnetic,one philosopher and one poultry farmer claim that they have managed to solve one of the most ancient riddles in the world.what preceeded what? the hen or the egg? the answer : it was the egg.the reason for that is,simply,the fact that the genetic material isn't being changed during the animal's life. Therefore, the first bird ever, what we name today as the hen must have been existed before as a "henny" fetus inside the egg. Professor John Brokefield, a specialist in evolutionary genetics in Notingham University told the news agency IP,that the matter is quite simple.The organism which lives in the egg must have had the same DNA of the hen it has eventually developed into.Therefore, the first living subject that you could say that it was part of this type of animal was this egg.This conclusion was also reached by his colleagues, Professor David Papinaue from King College in London and the poultry farmer Charles Burns.Pro.Papinaue,a specialist in the philosophy of the science agreed the the first hen must have been hatched from an egg and that proves that there have been hen eggs before hens. The simple explanation is that a hen can't hatch but from a hen egg and a bird which is not hen can lay a hen egg.So,after all, evolution works."If it contains a hen then it must be a hen egg", said Papinaue and emphasized : If a kangaroo would have lain an egg and when this egg would hatch an ostrich will get out of it then this egg is an ostrich egg, not a kangaroo egg.
