Which Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?

How many times throughout your life have you heard/made reference to this question?  I came across an article at that offers an answer from scientists in England who claim to have solved the mystery. 

The Answer?  Drum roll please... THE CHICKEN! 
Researchers wrote in a recently published report that it all comes down to one protein - ovocledidin-17 - which helps in the formation of the egg's hard shell.  This essential ingredient in the formation of the egg can only be produced inside a chicken, scientists from universities in Sheffield and Warwick concluded.
I am so relieved.  I've always suspected it was the chicken, but I was just getting my information from God.
Genesis 1:21-22 
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth
And, if The Bible doesn't offer a good enough explanation for ya' ...maybe Sesame Street's Here Is Your Life (Carton of Eggs) will.
