LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – You may have wondered about this as people have for centuries, but now, British researchers think they have the answer to the question, 'Which came first, the chicken or the egg?' 

They say the answer is in the shell of the egg specifically in the way it is formed.  They say a key protein used to make the shell can only be produced in the chicken's ovary and because of that, the chicken wins, it had to have come first.
