Ugh, the "chicken and the egg" paradox was actually SOLVED way back in the mid-20th, after the discovery of DNA.
The ANSWER IS: The EGG
The REASON IS: Since DNA does not change throughout the lifespan of an animal, whatever gave birth to the first chicken (in the egg) WAS NOT a
There is no single moment when one species becomes another -- i.e., no single organism gave birth to offspring of another species. Speciation is
more gradual than that.
Check out this video called There Was No First Human. The salient point in it is that Every generation is the same species as its parent
and the same species as its children. So there was no first chicken and there was no first chicken egg.
This seems paradoxical, but it really isn't when you consider how gradual the process is of one species becoming another, and how there were
overlapping generations between two species that were technically members of both species.
For example. if you take a species "1" that evolved into a species "2", then there would be a generation "1.5" in between that had features of both
species. and in between 1.5 and 2 was a generation 1.75 who would share features of 1.5 and 2. And then there would be a generation 1.875 who shared
features of 1.75 and 2. And so on. The generations approaching 2 get more and more like 2 and less and less like 1, but the change is so gradual
that it is virtually undetectable from one specific parent to its children.
Here's the video that explains it better:

To answer your question is pretty simple. The egg came first as it is a cell. Chickens came from evolution. This is pretty much a moot question at
this point with all we know from the evidence. And yes, the Earth IS a giant mineral mind made of the material of exploding suns (it's how you have
gold and other minerals in your body) not to mention life from Panspermia a reply to: Ravenwatcher
