Pointy end or Round end?

The question came up: Which end of an egg comes out first, the pointy end or the round end? I admit I’d not considered it before, and asked for answers. Thus far, some say Pointy and some say Round. These two videos posted on YouTube help, but I didn’t find them definitive:



The first seems to have the round end coming out first, but the second seems to be the pointy end.

Perhaps it’s not always one way or the other. I don’t know enough about the formation of the egg to be certain that it is always the same way.

Some breeds lay eggs that are rounder than others, such as the Cubalaya.
