Scientists have solved the riddle of chicken and eggs

Many wondered how a small chicken manages to break through a solid shell and get out of it at birth.

The answer to this question was sought for more than one century. And finally the biologists from Canada managed to answer him exactly. To do this, the scientist Mark Mackey and his colleagues cut the shell and studied it under a microscope.

During the research it was found that the shell consists of three layers of nanostructures, which differ from each other in strength, elasticity and other properties. At the stage of embryo formation, the shell is hard, over time, when the chick is growing, the surrounding shell becomes softer and helps the chicken break it.

Also, scientists concluded that the osteopontin protein controls the elasticity and hardness of the shell – the bigger it is, the stronger the shell. Over time, this protein in the inner parts of the shell becomes less, which helps the chicken out.
