I figured out the answer to this one when I was 3. Get on my level.

There actually isn't really an answer.

First we'll assume that it is "Which came first the chicken or the chicken egg," because eggs were around a long time before birds.

Once this is established, it is just how people decide to define things. Is a chicken egg a chicken egg because it was laid by a chicken or because it has an undeveloped chicken fetus inside of it?

Do you see where I'm going with this or should I explain further?

wrong you ****** . if it was not a chicken that laid the egg, it would not lay a chicken egg. it would lay an egg where, the egg itself is from that species, but the chicken is inside a not-chicken egg.

even before i knew about evolution and such
i never understood why people didnt get this

The egg has been around since male/female reproduction came about through evolution some time shortly before the Cambrian explosion. Eggs with protective shells came about through reptiles. At some point a reptilian proto-bird with a strong resemblance to a reptile laid an egg with a genetic structure differing enough from its predecessor that it was more bird than reptile - this happened for generations until there was a line where one was not a bird, but one was.

So, the bird egg came before the bird, because it was laid by a animal that was not defined as a true bird. There had to have been, at some point, a clear threshold that differentiated the one specie from the other.

That is why the egg comes before the bird. Same thing with the chicken, except the modern chicken comes from the hybrid offspring of the red and grey junglefowl, however; the same process applies, there was at one point a non-chicken laying an egg that birthed a true chicken.

Was a scientist really needed to tell people this ? I figured this out in 3rd grade.

I've always thought of it as a huge ass game of Telephone. The phrase starts out as something like "I like Vagina" and after very minute changes over a long course of time it can turn into something like "I **** Lasagna". However, there's no one point where I like Vagina becomes I **** Lasagna. There are the individual points where something as simple as a letter changes, and this adds up to the end result.

The chicken came first, created by God 6000 years ago along with the rest of the world and everything on it.

there are hundreds if not thousands of generations between one species and the next on an evolutionary chain. each one carries on genes or mutates a teeny, tiny amount. the creature that gave birth to the first chicken was almost indistinguishable from the chickens themselves.

Didn't they discover some substances in the egg shell that can only be produced in the body of the hen ?
Or m I just remembering it wrong.

then what was that bird called
sparrows don't lay chicken eggs
evolution flows, one species doesn't become another from one generation to the next
User avatar #23 to #21 - TheHutchie (01/30/2013) [-]
Obviously at some point the bird that evolved into the chicken was not a chicken yet. Ergo, it must have crossed the line from "not-chicken" to "chicken" at some stage.

A non-chicken would not be born, live as a non-chicken then suddenly become a chicken overnight, but a non-chicken could lay an egg from which the hatching creature can in fact be counted as a chicken.
