Chicken or Egg? The Answer

What came first? The chicken or the egg?

I reckon I’ve cracked this one (pun intended!).

Over time all creatures have evolved, and carry on doing so.

At one point in time there were no chickens, but there were birds. The first bird (as we recognise them to be) was Archaeopteryx…. and was nothing like a chicken…

These birds diversified over time and eventually, after much evolution and egg laying, a baby bird was hatched that was recognisable as a chicken.

That chickens parents were one step behind that evolutionary step between “non-chicken” and “chicken”….

So, lots of birds, lots of breading, lots of eggs…. and finally evolution gave us the chicken.

So there you go. The egg came first… by thousands of years.
