Which came first? I think that the egg came first and here is why. The parents of the first chicken I would call proto-chickens. To me, the difference between a chicken and a proto-chicken can be compared to the boundary between blue and violet in the color spectrum. There is no definite line between the two. The first chicken could have differed from its parents by a single gene mutation. We arbitarily define a color just like we arbitrarily define a chicken, an amoeba, or a human. Nature largely works on sliding scales.
