    Q. Do you know the answer to the age-old puzzle ‘Who came first; egg or chicken?

    Ans. It has been a matter of discussion for ages that who came first, an egg or a chicken. But after long years of mystery and research now the scientists have come to a conclusion that the chicken came first and not the egg.

This protein coverts the calcium carbonate into calcite crystals which makes up the egg shell.
