Yeah but so where did the ancestor species come from then, according for you ? Has it got a beginning or was it just there ?

When did the egg "adapt" so as to need to be incubated??? :? :?

I think chicken first as if you look at it scientifically :
you ll know that a parent first
if you read in any sacred book you ll know that too..
why ?
because fist of all the begining of the whole creature was a-couple of every species then reproduct then the mutation occur , different apperence , then hybridization ......etc
and so on
so chicken first :D

every thing on this earth has evolved as result of organic evolution. hence its quite clear that first chicken must have evolved from some organism in the evolotional hierarchy of birds.

so many theories, not bad though. But pretty much depends on which genes came first, or got incorporated into the chicken genome first. The genes responsible for making an egg shell or some other genes. The tree of life project is pretty useful to answer these questions.

The answer is simple. The supermarket came first, and came up with those handy cartons to carry them in. :lol:

LOL very nice, the supermarket invented the cartons, the cartons produced the eggs in order for the supermarket to make more cartons. Therefore, the cartoon specifies can live on. Excellent idea hahaha.

One thing I want to clearify that "chickens egg" came second that means "chicken" came first.

But the egg from which first hen came was layed by it's ancestor so the "egg" came first.

Bit confusing..... :( :?

just so you know all- yall, the Wikipedia is not a reliable source of info. i think that the chicken came 1st because with-out the bird there aint no egg. good luck with the answer, keep searching.
