If the question refers to the egg as a reproductive mechanism in general, the egg clearly came first. However, if it specifically refers to the chicken egg, then it is sort of a trick question. Actually answering the question would require some extremely specific arbitrary definitions of "chicken" and "chicken egg", and no useful information could ever be gleaned from answering this question.
Obvious the Chicken came first THEN the egg. If you think about the logically then your idea of something like an egg popping out of nowhere is hilarious to me. Think Logically and it might save you your embarrassment.
The egg does predate the chicken, but I assumed we were talking about the chicken egg, in which case it is a trick question. The change of species is gradual, and there are grey lines, so there was no "first" chicken or "first" chicken egg.
Yoyo, in that case the egg would still come first because ultimately the "first chicken" would have been born with the correct genetic information to be a chicken. Such a chicken would have first developed in a chicken egg.
If you think logically you'll probably realize that neither could pop out of nowhere.
Since both chickens & eggs exist, there must have been a first of each.
Why assume that this is a trick question?
Even if the process was long & slow, the idea that neither came first doesn't make sense.
Which came first- the chicken or the fertilized chicken egg?
It was the Rooster that came first-
if the rooster hadn't come there wouldn't have been a fertilized egg.
Two birds that weren’t really chickens created a chicken egg, and hence, we have an answer: The egg came first, and then it hatched a chicken.
