Read the bible. Clearly, the chicken(s) appeared exactly when God said so, not neccessitating an egg.

how??
no idea.
there is no proof fo the egg coming first and no proof for the chicken coming first.
Therefore, I have to decided to believe that they came together.
The chicken was there...being a chicken
The egg was there being an egg.....

the egg hatches into a chicken

the two chickens (obviously opposite sexes) mate and make more eggs, which then become chickens.

the question is; was the egg the male or the female, the same with the chicken??

So far back in the evolutionary system that the chicken and the egg were practically the same thing...or something completely different.

Well, since life existed before it evolved to give birth to chickens via eggs, the chicken did.

I think you'll find the real question here is what came first, the biplane or the zepplin?

the egg, because the chicken has to come out of an egg or by definition of a chicken, it aint a chicken. whereas an egg, by definition, doesnt necessicarily have to have come from a chicken already there.

Birds were laying eggs long before the chicken was a species. Therefore, the first chicken came from an egg, but its mother wasn't a chicken.
agreed, and dinosaurs were laying eggs before any birds exsisted - so the egg definetly came first

no, sea creatures evoloved into dinosaurs who layed eggs and then dinosaurs (probably) evolved into birds

Ok, I'll be more accurate:

Mutations that cause evolution happen in the sex cells of a creature. So at some point, a pre-evolved chicken got pregnant with a chicken. This chicken's new genes caused it to grow around an egg, but I imagine in that gap where the parents aren't chickens and the offspring is a chicken, the zygote (first cell of a creature, we were all zygotes once) was part of the chicken, and not the egg. However, zooming in closer, we can say that the point at which the zygote multiplies to make a chicken happens before that chicken's egg is completely formed.

But I'm no expert!

who laid the egg?
The dinosaur laid the egg, then it got mutated and turned out like a chicken.
