There are metamorphosis in insects, fishes, toads and frogs .. but in proto birds really ? What ever creature laid the egg which hatched into chicken ( i doubt it was any insect, fish or toad ) was a non chicken and therefor the egg came first.

I'm nit-picking here, because in general terms your account of how evolution proceeds is perfectly correct. But chickens didn't evolve through hundreds of thousands of years of natural selection; they were bred from the Asian jungle-fowl, Gallus gallus, about 8,000 years ago.

The first chicken would have been born from an egg laid by a protochicken.
Then the chicken would have laid the first chicken egg.
The sequence goes;
1) Last protochicken
2) Last protochicken egg
3) First chicken
4) First chicken egg.
The chicken came first.
