I think to ever truley be able to answer the question, people need to decide on 1) does the discussion end with the first actual chicken/egg
2)does it stop with the first egg..period.
if it is just the chicken species itself, it may be the chicken.
But if you include all egg layers, expecially the more scaley predecessor of the chicken, it may be the egg. Because a mutation somewhere made a bird/chicken as opposed to a feathery dinosaur.
But then, you have to ask, what about the missing link? The dinosaur chicken hybrid? Would they be considered chickens?
