    More I think about it the chicken makes more sense than the egg. Not totally sold, but I'm for sure leaning chicken now

    Actually, fish amphibians and reptiles were laying eggs long before the chicken came along, so there's really no question.

    Indeed. Also, through the evolutionary process, the other animals that evolved to become the chicken likely laid eggs before the point where it became recognizable as what we'd call a 'chicken' today. The first such recognizable 'chicken' would have come from an egg, therefore, the egg came first.

    Wow, I always thought it was chicken. After reading that, egg makes much more sense

    Love the comment at the bottom of the article by snake09:

    "In other news, top American and European scientists, mathematicians, scholars, etc. through years of vigorous research have concluded that the bird is greater than or equal to the word."

    Next question: how many food items on the face of the Earth taste like chicken?
