Scientists and poultry farmers have agreed: the egg was used to Chicken

June 5 2006

British geneticist, philosopher and aviculturist believe that you have found the answer to the eternal question of what it was before - the chicken or the egg.

According to Professor John Brookfield geneticist at the University of Nottingham, animal genetic material does not change during his life, and the chick who is in the egg, the same DNA as that of an adult bird. Therefore the first bird had definitely come from any embryo or hatched from eggs. "Thus, the first living thing which we can certainly be called a representative of this kind, it was just that first egg. Therefore, the egg was before, "- says Brookfield.

A similar conclusion was reached and a professor of philosophy from London, David Papineau. "If the egg is a chicken, then it is a hen's egg. If a kangaroo will carry the egg from which an ostrich will be printed, then this will surely be an ostrich egg, not kengurinoe "- quoted him as saying BBC.

For its part, the head of the organization vsebritanskoy "Hens UK has agreed with the conclusions of scientists. Eggs were long before chickens appeared first. Of course, these eggs could not be a chicken - in the sense that we invest in this concept today - but they in fact were still eggs ", - said the bird-fancier.
