The chicken or the egg?

Scientists say the bird comes before the egg

It's a question that has remained unanswered for ages- which came first, the chicken or the egg? But now, there may be an answer. British university scientists say they've unraveled the mystery of which came firstâ| and it's the chicken. Evidently a protein found only in a chicken's ovaries is needed to form the egg. And while scientists say it's a breakthrough, not everyone thinks it's a big deal.

Albany resident Zavier Booker says it makes sense the chicken would come first. "I would have to say it would be the chicken. It takes a chicken to lay an egg, so you've got to have a chicken first" says Booker.

When it comes to which came first the chicken or the egg, residents say they don't care. Either way, they love them both.
