      Definately the egg! Dinosaurs laid eggs and chickens evolved much later

      Oooh, this is a good one, moseleal01 and clarkrm02.

      I think the first chicken did indeed come from a chicken egg, even though that egg didn’t come from chickens.

      Well there’s a question.

      Evolutionarily speaking I think that the egg came first. This is because I think other animals probably laid eggs before the chicken was on the scene (well the earth!).
