The egg came first. If you think about Darwinian evolution, the process of evolution....then the chicken-like thing, that was almost what we call a chicken, would have laid the egg that contained what we know as a chicken...so, the egg came first.

I'd have to say the egg, since the chicken evolved later on!

The egg came before the chicken. Researchers have found a rare fossilized dinosaurs nest to help answer the conundrum of which came first the chicken or the egg? Researchers have now studied the fossil nest and found 5 partial eggs. Literally interpreting, the answer to the riddle is clear. Dinosaurs were forming bird-like nests and laying bird-like eggs long before birds (including chickens)evolved from Dinosaurs. The egg came before the chicken. Chickens evolved well after the meat eating dinosaurs layed the eggs. The riddle might now be rephrased: Which came first, the Dinosaur or the egg? The new nest now provides some of the most strongest evidence in favor of the bird-like egg over the chicken.

No no, the chicken just didn't magically appear (per previous posting), the egg just fell out of the sky.....(LOL)

Well first there was a rooster (named Adam of course) and then he gave a rib to make a hen (Eve) and then you get the egg. :-) So- The chicken
