What came first.. The chicken or the egg?
Hello. I can assist you with your question.

The egg came first. Since the mutation that made a chicken a chicken would have happened before birth, it had to happen in the egg of the non-chicken (but almost chiken) species that laid the egg, not in the animal that laid it.
