So a chicken and an egg were in bed together.

The chicken reaches over, lights a cigarette and says "I guess we answered that age-old question"

to be viable an egg has to be fertilized
the co..rooster came first
then rolled over and went to sleep.

Eggs were definately around before the chicken or its ancestors came into existence. To be honest I have never understood this question or wondered why people see it as such a paradox.

Here is another question for those that ponder this question: Which is heavier, a ton of feathers or a ton of lead?

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


Egg. Chickens come from eggs.


2)does it stop with the first egg..period.

With the first egg that produced a chicken.


if it is just the chicken species itself, it may be the chicken.

...which was hatched by an egg-laying ancestor.


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.

There's a lot of evolutionary links between the feathered dinosaurs and chickens. They were laying eggs before they became feathery.

We've found eggs that date to the Triassic (200 million years ago) and would expect to find older ones: www.cyberwest.com... .


But then, you have to ask, what about the missing link? The dinosaur chicken hybrid? Would they be considered chickens?

Probably tasted like chicken.

idc what scientists say there hypocrites all there good for is taking the things that make sense and then applying them to thigns that they struggle on obviously i took there own words and shoved it down there throat when i pointed out that the egg came first just as the hammerhead pup did

hammerheads were born mutated so therefore the chicken hatched out mutated when it first arrived and since it hatched that puts the egg first!

Does the dinosaur come first or the egg? It’s a metaphoric idea/question. If a bird dinosaur lays an egg and it hatches a chicken, then where did that dino come from to lay the egg?

Think of it like : there is a big empty room with both chickens and eggs, then ask the same question to yourself.

somthing I started a few back. Chicken or egg.

I think of it a little like this:
- single celled life that replicates by division evolves to:
- multi cellular life thar replicates by releasing a single cell evolving to:
- multi cellular life that replicates by releasing a specialist cell (egg) which evolves to:
- multicellular life that replicates with more protected eggs like casings, shells etc
- and so on...

So all complex creatures evolved from the first lifeform(s) that created the first specialist replication cell.

The question is akin to asking a how there can be a liger without liger parents.
