Asked by franklin to DJ, Kyler, Mia, Mick, Peter on 2 Sep 2013. This question was also asked by oakleigh.
Keywords: chicken, egg
@franklin: Hey there – glad to see you posted this here for a more comprehensive answer after CHAT this morning.
The answer is the EGG. Simple. Reptiles and dinosaurs were egging it up before chickens evolved.
BUT if you mean which came first, the chicken, or the chicken egg? Then it gets a bit more complicated. But the answer is still EGG. Just.
I like this quick YouTube clip that explains (and not just because it brings dogs into it!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1a8pI65emDE
The egg. Chickens are actually descendants of dinosaurs, which were laying eggs millions of years before there was anything we would recognise as a chicken
Ooh! two answers posted together – lucky we are both saying just about the same 🙂
