depends on your veiw. a religious person. or at least christian. would say the chicken. because on the 5th day...... but an evolutionist. or agnostic would say the egg because the chicken evolved from......

But if you look from the scientific point of view then they say that the fluid required to form the egg is present in the bird only.So, the chicken must come first for the egg to come first.

The eggs that made the first chicken didn't come from a chicken; they came from a genetically similar bird-like creature that's probably extinct and also is linked to what evolved to become turkey.

No,I wanted to say that the for the egg to be formed a bird is necessary.Not that only the chicken can lay eggs. Any oviparous can lay eggs. And if the chicken evolved from some similar bird-like creature then did the creature came first or its egg?

The fetus mutated, not the fucking animal itself.

yes that's the evolutionists point of view but a very religious Christian would say the chicken because god created it on the 5th day.

The proof is that a chicken cant be born without a egg. And also ASAP science co-creators Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown shared a video on their YouTube channel that delves into the whole chicken vs. egg debate. So really guys, which one came first: the chicken or the egg?

If you want to take the question literally, there's not much of a debate — egg laying animals (like dinosaurs) existed long before chickens. So eggs definitely came first, but Moffit and Brown qualify the question by asking, "if a chicken is born from an egg, where did the egg come from?"

Research shows that the OV-17 protein that produces chicken eggs can only be found in, you guessed it, chicken ovaries. But this all depends on how you define a chicken egg. In other words, is a chicken egg an egg laid by a chicken, or one that contains a chicken? It's also important to consider the egg itself, as small DNA mutations occurring over time can create new species from the initial cell. An earlier animal like a chicken that Moffit and Brown call a "proto-chicken" could have produced a modern chicken, but folks disagree on whether this would be considered a chicken inside a proto-chicken egg or a chicken inside a chicken egg.

In both creationism and evolution it is evident that the egg came first.

On the fifth day, according to creationism, water creatures of all kinds were created. several types of water creatures lay eggs. Birds were created after this on the same day.

As far as what evolution teaches, several egg laying creatures laid eggs before chickens were even around. There is evidence of eggs in fossil records leading to the assumption that some dinosaurs and early reptiles laid eggs.

I think the egg did because without a egg, the chicken cant be born.
