"...the problem about the egg and the hen, which of them came first, was dragged into our talk, a difficult problem which gives investigators much trouble. And Sulla my comrade said that with a small problem, as with a tool, we were rocking loose a great and heavy one, that of the creation of the world. "

excerpt: "..birds are dinosaurs, and most of the genetic program for the dinosaur characteristics we want to bring back should still be available in the chicken. Chickensauros is a rough sketch of the creature I am certain we can grow in the near future from a chicken egg. By biochemically manipulating a chicken embryo in the egg to “awaken the dinosaur within."
