    Dinosaurs laid eggs which pre-date chickens, so... eggs.

    I asked my 7-year old this the other day for sh*ts and giggles and he thought it was pretty freaking funny and confusing.

    We never did figure out an answer, but my thought is the egg, and something to do with evolution (although I'm not clever enough to get past that point of thought).

    You are all dumb. It was neither, it was first the alien that came and used his ray gun to turn dirt into the chicken....or did he turn it into an egg, I forget.

    Here's an overthought answer for the pile.

    Since evolution delivered us a chicken in very small adaptive steps, there wasn't an 'Eve' chicken to lay the first chicken egg. Chickens have been evolving and eggs have been evolving. The first eggs were just cells dividing.

    You incubated for 9 months inside your mother, starting out as a hybrid of a sperm cell and an "egg" cell. If you were able to watch that development process unfold you would see a lot of incremental steps adding together before you end up with a viable human being. That reproductive cycle is tuned to benefit our particular species (Selective Adaptation).

    Our 9 month incubation time is pretty long compared to many other creatures, but it allows us to develop complex brains. It takes us many months to take conscious charge of our brains (and subsequently our bodies); which is why we're helpless at birth while many other animals are running around and instinctively capable of defending themselves at birth. Species like ours are able to shelter and protect a child, so the child is able to develop for longer while being helpless.

    So the "egg" clearly came first, but it wasn't a chicken egg. Chickens came from ancestors we wouldn't call chickens. Chickens descended from dinosaurs, dinosaurs laid eggs, dinosaur eggs came before chickens. Case closed.

    haha! Really, though, seeds and eggs are the same side of the same conversation.

    It'd be more interesting (to me anyway) to keep pushing infinite regressions -- asking if nothing ever came first. Why assume the Big Bang created all matter in a void, when it was most likely just energy jetting in from somewhere else. What came before that? And what came before *that*? Was the answer ever nothingness?

    I like to think about it, but eventually I have to pay my taxes or something and my humanity locks me back into the couple square meters around my eyeballs.

    The rooster came first, the hen faked it, but you still get the egg from that

    What would evolve into an egg? Furthermore what would evolve into a chicken, The beginning of all things is beyond our understanding because we try to use knowledge to understand things, we try to reason, we use rationality. It is this way so that we may see our true selves, so that we can see things simply are in existence at their base, which is their ultimate being. If you let go of your rationality which is truly a creation of the ego in a futile effort to satisfy itself or yourself however you want to see the mind that thinks, if you let go of rationality you will see that it doesn't truly matter which came first but that they exist at all that matters, Furthermore the fact that they exist without you understanding their source of creation should tell you that there is a being which is beyond us that does know. For without a creator what is created. As the matrix would say if you take the Blue pill you believe what you want (Keep your Ego) You take the Red pill (You let go of yourself and your delusions) And i can show you true reality.

    It's called natural selection and is basic science:

    I'm going to go with Eggs as is the same with humans. Mutations occur within the sex cells to create a child that is genetically slightly different to their parents. I would think that point mutations, which occurred during the creation of the egg, would cause it to come out differently, then after millions of years, the mutations became more apparent.

    P.s brought this topic up to see what people think/say
    Not sure what the chicken evolved from (a la Darwinian theory), but once evolved, it would've laid an egg... so I'm going to say the chicken came first.

    A chicken's egg cannot come from anything but a chicken. So unless the egg was put here on earth by God, or an alien, or whatever... I would have to say the chicken was here first.

    I think the choice was between a chicken and an egg. No where was an Apple mentioned...

    Darkness doesn't exist. It is just the absence of light.

    Okay, here we go again with the undying question of who came first..

    Uhm well for me let's just based it with the first people who live in the earth.Adam & Eve.. God first created them to reproduce and to multiply, so for me before an egg came out there should have a chicken first. As well as with the babies, there should be a bearer before they came out in this world.

    This gives me a strange urge to re-write Adam & Eve as a teenage coming-of-age tale.

    Well it was the SEED which came first whose DNA got modified by cosmic radiations and turned into an Egg, from which jumped out the Chickens.

    I am releasing my thesis in the next century.
