The omelette
Reptiles first appeared 290-355 million years ago during the Carboniferous period. Whereas birds did not appear until the Tertiary period 2-65 million years ago. Most reptiles lay hard shelled eggs. Although it could be argued that eggs appear even earlier in the Paleozic as fish developed 420-540 millian years ago. Gold to the egg, the poultry takes a poor second.
The chicken evolved from a bird which was very nearly, but not quite, a chicken. Since the first chicken must have hatched from an egg of this 'nearly chicken', then it is clear that the egg came first.
How original to ask this. Never seen it before on here - not!
oh please egg

sorry bendtoy but yesterday was the first time i came across this site. ijust wanted to see the answers i would receive seen as my boyfriend loves confusin his friends with this one
The egg - the dinosaur egg was around well before chickens were. Now if you had asked "Which came first the chicken or the chicken egg?" then thats a whole different story....
Surely then we just get into the semantics of whether a chicken's egg is an egg laid by a chicken, or an egg that will hatch a chicken. I'm still going for the egg myself.
.... also, at which point does a vegetarian draw the line ????? Hmmm
The answer is for a chicken and a chicken's egg - the chicken came first. For the dinosour and the dinosour egg - the dinosour came first. Here is why... God made the earth and all that is in it. He made all living things. He made all animals!!! Therefore, the chicken came first for the chicken egg and the dinosour came first for the dinosour egg. However, the dinosour egg came before the chicken.
I sort of agree with kandolyn77. I believe God made the chicken first because he did not want to sit and incubate them.
I've heard the theory that the sole purpose of the chicken is to be a carrier for the egg, therefore implying that the egg came first , to make it's own transporter. So guaranteeing the continuation of the species.
