Chicken vs. Egg mystery solved

This should be the perfect topic for discussion on the forum...

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Chicken or egg? Egg or chicken?

The only question I often ponder is what different dishes I can make with them. Both are good eats! And that's all I care.

More food for thought, if you watched 60 minutes not long ago, it was actually the dinosaur that came first as in they said dinosaurs evolved into chickens. Guess that means when we have baked chicken we are actually eating dinosaur

Eggs have existed way longer than chickens. I think that pretty much answers the question.

Balderdash about "eggs can only be created inside chickens" bit too.

yeah, imagine if that little songbird in your back yard was 300 times bigger and had razor sharp teeth. Wonder what kind of "bird-feeder" you would need, a cow or something?
