The Bird, or there would be no egg. But others will say the egg, or there would be no bird.

Wouldn't it be the egg, because chickens are descendants of reptiles?

Of courser the egg came first. Insects lay eggs, fish do, amphibians etc...
If you mean which came first: a bird or that particular bird's egg? Than the answer is the bird
The bird, the first of the particular species, appeared via mutation, then it started laying eggs
