      I have always wondered what came first, the chicken or the egg. I believe that since organisms evolved from being unicellular to multicellular and began to perform meiosis and not mitosis as the form of their of reproduction and evolved millions of years, the chicken and the egg is not a question of which came first, but it is merely talking about a relatively recent generation. If you can start back at a single organism, you can imagine the evolution. A single celled organism turns into a marine dwelling multicellular organism. That marine organism turns into a land living organism, and slowly, over millions of years, that land organism species slowly evolves into a bird, and then specifically into a chicken that lays eggs. And I don’t believe that I am far off, because all organisms under the Kingdom Animalia reproduce with some kind of egg. That is my point of view, I am open to anyone elses opinion.

      If the egg came first, who sat on it?

      Linn, Gallus evolved from primitive species x of chicken….. so it was neccesary to mate x-species
      with each other….. then some mutations occured in zygote….. Egg got layed….. x-species mother sat on it…. hatched….. then gallus species came into existance…… simple…

      so Egg first….

      That simply as man evolved from monkey….. fertilised zygote is needed

      Chiken evolved from x-chicken……. and egg is needed.

      Hope you ll understand …. that was simplest explaination for me…….

      The egg came first, I have read from a book stating that egg came first before the chicken.

      um, in case this hasn’t been clarified, but overwhelming evidence does point to the egg coming first.

      reasoning:
      genetic material cannot change during an animal’s life.
      therefore, the first ancestor of the chicken had to have evolved into the "true chicken" as a zygote/embryo, NOT as an adult.

      so, because the organism inside the eggshell does NOT change when it hatches, the first real chicken had to have been in an egg.

      See DustFinger….

      Evolution of any organism in to higher type is not seen in same generation, variations are observed in next or preceding generations.These variations can be due to interspecific mating or mutation in organisms that might have occured in earlier generation and it reflects in next or preceding generations.
      Same way Hen might have evolved from its ancestor species due to mating with another species or by mutation…. And the eggs carrying variation had been layed by the ancestoral species female…. Then in hundreds of eggs Female(hen) had born that layed eggs of it’s own species different from the ancestoral one by mating with Cock(Male) of her new species and poduced more species members….these members were potentialy viable to suit environmental conditions and survived..and populated…

      It was the whole story……And thus Hen came from Egg….. So egg first.. 😛

      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 😀

    • #71128

      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.

      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.

      Such a simple question with a simple answer.

      There were egg-laying species around long before what we identify as a modern chicken existed. They weren’t all birds either…

      Therefore… the egg existed long before the chicken.

    • #76932

      Well, any egg for sure. But a chicken’s egg didn’t exist before the chicken existed ! Coz the species evolved out of quite a few cells at first before they became multicellular, and with this came the chicken and after that surely the egg.

      Depends on how you define "chicken egg". Does is have to look like chicken egg does now, or is it a chicken egg if the chicken comes out of it, or did chicken had to lay it?
      Anyways, I am for the egg: different breeds of chickens have different looking eggs, so however different the first egg to produce chicken looked like I would still call it chicken egg. And anyone that thinks that chicken came first, needs to clarify what is a "chicken", since I am sure 1st one did not look exactly like common variety of today.
