Its the egg because the chicken came out of an egg which was laid by a creature which the chicken evolved from
The chicken would have evolved from something. It could have been the chicken or the egg. But I would say Chicken because the animal it evolved form may not have laid eggs and the Chicken may have laid eggs in order to adapt to its surroundings.
The eggs were laid by some kind of Bird like creature. Then through evolution the chicken came to be.Quote:
If the egg then who laid it
If the animal the chicken evolved from didn't lay eggs, how was the chicken born? Part of what it means to be a chicken is to be born from an egg. The egg HAD to come first.Quote:

Before I answer your question I must express my surprise as I had always thought Freeplay was a smart person. Now though you, shaking all my preconceptions, expose him as a intelligent, independent buttocks. Bravo sir, bravo.Quote:

It's like saying: Which came first, the human or a human fetus. Obviously a human fetus came first as it was carried be an animal just below humans evolution wise.
Thats what I thought.Quote:

its just one of these questions that we shall never know the true answer to...:(
It could not have, that's impossible.Quote:

It's all over:
'The chicken came first, not the egg', scientists prove!
It’s an age-old puzzle that’s stumped generations of scientists.
But now they believe they have cracked the conundrum of what came first: the chicken or the egg.
British researchers say the chicken must have come first as the formation of eggs is only possible thanks to a protein found in the chicken’s ovaries.
‘It had long been suspected that the egg came first but now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact the chicken came first,’ said Dr Colin Freeman, from Sheffield University, who worked with counterparts at Warwick University.
‘The protein had been identified before and it was linked to egg formation but by examining it closely we have been able to see how it controls the process,’ he added.
The protein – called ovocledidin-17 (OC-17) – acts as a catalyst to speed up the development of the shell.
Scientists used a super computer called HECToR, based in Edinburgh, to ‘zoom in’ on the formation of an egg.
It showed OC-17 was crucial in kick-starting crystallisation – the early stages of forming a shell.
The protein coverts calcium carbonate into calcite crystals which makes up the egg shell, creating six grammes of shell every 24 hours.
Prof John Harding, also of Sheffield University, said the discovery could have other uses.
‘Understanding how chickens make shells is fascinating in itself but can also give clues towards designing new materials,’ he said.
Next challenge: Why did the chicken cross the road?
well to stop this question the egg two weird ensest animals had sex and lay an egg and the baby was messed up and it made a chicken
