    what he said...my response is usually that eggs came first way ahead of time. look at reptiles for instance...

    i know it's a kind of round-about way of answering (and implies that it's not necessarily a chicken egg) but it's still a solid answer :P

    I think the question should more precisely be presented as:
    What came first: The chicken or the chicken's egg?
    After all, most of us know that eggs predate chickens by many millions of years.

    Having said that, I'd say the chicken came first because a chicken's egg cannot be laid by any other species.

    So where did the chicken come from?

    Was this chicken born then? Because surely a chicken hatches from a chicken egg.

    I think 'chicken-ness' is the result of development, rather than a state into which it is born. Somewhere along it's life, a species that was almost like a chicken, did something different that made it into an animal that we humans now refer to as a chicken. It then passed its genes off unto it's offspring making them the first prodigy of what became chickens. Thus the Chicken came before the chicken egg.
