Did the chicken | come before the egg?

Yes but it's not likely to have been the type of fluffy chicken that we recognise today.

No as all life must hatch and grow out of something i.e. an egg.

Depends on your understanding of the Bible and other ancient, philosophical texts which discuss the origins of life.

It's tricky- perhaps there wasn't one chicken or egg first but instead it all happened gradually over time.

    Something related to a chicken must have laid an egg and the egg had a genetic mutation causing a chicken to hatch rather than original bird

    I reckon eggs probably came first, but they might have looked different to the eggs we eat for breakfast today.

    Egg-citing debate but i think chickens evolved from a bird ancestor. Better question - why do chicken and eggs taste good together? Weird.
