You might think here on the UK’s only magazine dedicated to commercial poultrymeat and egg farming that we had the answer to that age old question: What came first, chicken or egg? 

Well it’s true. We know exactly which came first, but can’t reveal it for obvious reasons.

What we can share is this image that shows, in this instance, the egg came first. Businessman Simon Steer from Culmstock, Devon, cracked one of his hen’s eggs into the frying pan where it promptly turned chicken shaped.

But then that egg came from a chicken, and that chicken from an egg… I need a lie down.
