The short answer: the chicken. The long answer is contained in the analysis called Structural Control of Crystal Nuclei by Eggshell Protein by British scientists Colin Freeman and John Harding of the University of Sheffield and David Quigley and P. Mark Rodger of the University of Warwick, published in the current journal Angewandte Chemie. "It had long been suspected," said Freeman, "that the egg came first, but now we have the scientific proof that shows in fact the chicken came first". Sort of.
