Well, the chicken sits on the eggs face, so hopefully the chicken would come first.

It was the egg.

Through evolution, things which were almost, but not yet chickens laid eggs which were ever more like chickens. At one point a non-chicken laid an egg which hatched into what could be described as a chicken. Unfortunately the nature of species isn't well enough defined yet to know when a "pre-chicken" is not yet a chicken, or when an egg is going to hatch into a "new" species.

n.b. I'm sure this topic has been discussed before somewhere in the forums.

But a non-chicken can still sit on a chicken egg...
and how did the chicken get there without hatching from an egg?

where does the egg came? chicken right?
Posted 5/6/07
nope. Due to evolution a non-chicken can lay an egg which will hatch into a chicken. This is because of random pairings of the parents genes and random mutations which occur as a result of gamma radiation. The parents both have different genomes, however the combination in the offspring is that of a "chicken" at least close enough to be defined as the species Gallus gallus in one way or another.

waaahhhh crazy biology person!! xD didnt even know this... (*knocks head on table*)
OKAY I CHANGE MY ANSWER!! i say the egg came first =P

no, I mean that all species on earth evolved. They had parents which were similar to them, but not exactly the same. Those who were best adapted to their niche in the environment survived, others didn't.
All species on earth did, however, come from something which was not them.
