Metalcraze, the first chicken could have hatched from a soft-shelled egg. However, all the genetic material for the first chicken was present in the first egg, but not in either of its parents.

I`d like to live in a world where a chicken can cross the road without his motivations being questioned.

n the summer of 2010, British researchers cracked the problem when they discovered that the protein necessary to create the eggshell was made exclusively in the ovaries of the chicken. So the chicken had to come first, because the eggshell can`t be made without that protein.

Actually, it`s a philosophical/religious question. If you believe in Biblical creation, the chicken came first, since God created the birds and the beasts as fully formed animals.

However, if you believe in evolution, the first chicken was the mutated offspring of two animals that were similar to, but not quite, chickens. Since an egg is genetically identical to the organism that hatches from it, the first chicken came from the first chicken egg.

Actually, though, I think this pretty much settles it:

I don`t know what happened between being an egg you say doesn`t contain a chicken, to later make it a chicken that can lay chicken eggs. The only way it could be a chicken first is if you are a religious person who thinks it was *poof* WE GOTS CHICKENS!

It changes depending on how you define Chicken and Egg.

The chicken came first - chickens lay Chicken eggs. The egg the first chicken came from does not have a protein specific to chickens. The first chicken Egg came from a Chicken. The first chicken came from a Chickeneque egg.

klaxor: They can and they did; every generation of chicken is infinitesimally different from the last one. Then, of course, it`s all up to how you define a "chicken".

Of course it was the egg that came first. Two things that were *almost* chickens had sex, combined their dna and created a fertilized egg that was finally a chicken. Simple evolution.

Since eggs aren`t sexually mature, they can`t come first.

We do know though. It was the egg. This story was laid to rest decades ago.
