Science Proves Whether the Chicken or the Egg Came First

It's really embarrassing how many sleepless nights I've had due to my brain synapsing and wondering whether the chicken or the egg came first. I flip, I flop, I twist, I turn—it's definitely a good brain exercise. But after watching ASAP Science definitively answer the question of which came first—the chicken or the egg—I can now sleep in peace.

wait... wait wait.... wtf? This is BY FAR the most idiotic thing I've ever seen explained online. It answered NOTHING! The question which came first the chicken or the egg is all about genesis. What this video left was the same question. Which came first? The Proto-Chicken or the Egg? The whole point is EVERYTHING starts from somewhere... but where? This question in particular is a paradox, because you can't have one without the other. But then saying another type of chicken not actually called a chicken laid the first egg that had a chicken in it explains NOTHING! That's more like a lame excuse to just move on... I mean really? Or did I miss something here?
