Your postulation reminds me of the age old question, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?". Which, I might add has yet to be answered as
Actually, if evolution is to be considered to be the method by which modern chickens developed from other species, then the egg came BEFORE the
...or a least the first creature that a zoologist would call a "real chicken" (a genetically modern chicken) had to have hatched from a "real chicken"
egg, however, the creature that laid that egg may not have been "quite a chicken" in the zoological sense of the word.
What I'm saying is that the theory of evolution tells us that the species we call a "chicken" today evolved from an earlier creature that I will call
a "proto-chicken". This proto-chicken was almost a chicken, but not quite a modern-day chicken. The theory of evolution or father proto-chicken that
laid that first "real chicken" egg that caused that egg to be the holder of the first modern chicken.
So the egg came first
. The egg would have been carrying the genetic information that would eventually hatch into the first modern chicken.
The modern chicken wasn't "born" as a proto-chicken, and then change into a modern chicken later after it was born.
