  • Biologically, the egg. Whatever animal the chicken evolved from laid eggs.

  • Vladimir hit it.

  • Because dinosaurs... (Dinosaurs were not the first, of course, but they were before chickens at least.

  • Assuming two species of bird mated and when they produced an egg, out came a chicken.

  • Chickens evolved from another species. That other species had to give birth to the first chicken in the form of an egg. This is not longer a compelling question. People should stop asking it.

  • Reptiles laid eggs long before birds/Chickens did, It didn't specify it had to be a chicken egg.

  • Eggs were around for millions of years before chickens. This first chicken came from an egg, which was layed by a chicken-like bird.

  • proto chicken laid it

  • sos, but god ain't real so there's your point gone. The egg had probably evolved from a dinosaur or something, so it was definitely not the chicken.

  • none is correct it is a circle cause eggs because eggs make chickens but chickens make eggs

  • Chickens must have evolved from some other animal that laid eggs. Therefore, the first "chicken" must have come from an egg laid by a "chicken-like-being."

  • Chickens evolved from historic birds. The first chicken, as we know them today, started out as an egg of its slightly genetically different ancestor

  • Science has answered this question. Every chicken has DNA that matches the egg they came from. So every chicken was born of a chicken egg that came first.

  • dat chicken had to hatch from the egg of an albready existing species, bruh

  • Dinosaur eggs long outdated chickens

  • because the birds may have interbred therefore creating the egg

  • By the time it was an 'evolved' chicken, it would have been 'born' from an egg.

  • Egg is the threshold to next generation. Two animals which were not hen/cock might have been the parents of the first egg from where the first hen saw the light of the World.

  • the egg is the first process ...duhh

  • Evolution, my peeps. Unless the chicken was live-birthed and then laid an egg (which is extremely unlikely because this is a major difference in birthing strategies), evolution dictates that the egg must have come first.

Neither, they evolved together...

WITCHCRAFT!!!!
TBR says2015-04-15T15:36:21.4703608-05:00
Sorry is that was unclear. I am accusing Kreakin of supporting witchcraft. I hope that clears that right up.
Kreakin says2015-04-15T15:46:38.4226045-05:00
Take a gallon of rams blood mix it with serpents entrails smear it on a pentagram, say the magic incantation and voila! After 6 moons and the sacrifice of an innocent you have a chicken carrying an egg under it's wing. Satan be praised!!!!
Kreakin says2015-04-15T15:48:39.1688828-05:00
@TBR - How did you know about the withcraft thing?
Stefy says2015-04-15T15:59:36.4485464-05:00
If were talking about an individual chicken (THE chicken) then the egg came forst
TBR says2015-04-15T16:35:54.8800814-05:00
Kreakin - I know witchcraft when I see it. Demon be gone
TBR says2015-04-15T16:37:40.8319398-05:00
Again sorry for the confusion. I blame the power of Satan corrupting kreakin, leading him to believe and deceive others with this chicken nonsense.
TBR says2015-04-15T16:41:47.0405662-05:00
Please don't turn into a chicken - please don't turn me into a chicken
TBR says2015-04-15T16:53:55.1285018-05:00
Fu@c. I think I'm a chicken now. Is this your work Kreakin? Fix it. Pecking out these sentences with my beak it tough.
CKLim says2015-04-15T19:40:26.2527611-05:00
Egg first. Chicken is just an egg's way to make another egg.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-04-29T07:28:46.8688770-05:00
You mean the egg isn't just a chicken's way to make another chicken?
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-04-29T10:37:26.8600036-05:00
But reall ... This only applies in the chickens instance. Cells splitting and asexual reproduction dont require eggs. The animal that laid the very first egg was probably borne of this type of reproduction first.

Actually the egg was a mutant spawn of the velociraptor. They had feathers and were twice the size of a chicken.
