Come on children...think about it...there is this magical process called EVOLUTION...it is via this process that the breed known as chicken came to be..therefore the chicken came far later than the egg...we know this as eggs are used by all species to breed...they are essential ... so if you are going to ask a stupid question then you should be more specific....in this case the ideal question is what came first, the chicken or the egg that contains a chicken..and by asking the question properly you answer your own question...

Haven't you heard the joke?

A chicken and an egg were lying in bed after just having sex. The chicken lit up a ciggarette, turned to the egg and said "Well, that answers that one."
lol that was odd...

For people who believe in God, the answer is the chicken.

God created Adam & Eve, not independent sperm and eggs.

Seriously, chickens arent' related to dinosaurs! They are completely different species. Chickens are mammals and dinosaurs are reptiles.

Tiny vibrating strings of Energy came first that intiated the Big Bang! That's if String theorists are to be believed...

God had to have put the chickens on earth first, for the eggs to come, they have to keep warm, so chickens it is

I thought it was when 2 branes banged into each other? Which, actually, I suppose is kind of the same thing...

mammals are descended from reptioles. and a chicken is not a mammal, it is a bird

I concede on that point. I always get that wrong because they're both warm blooded.

So how do you propose that a warm blooded creature evolved out of a cold blooded creater. I say impossible. I'll buy evolution from the ape standpoint but not from the ocean. Too far fetched for me.

When you think about evolution it is hard to grasp sometimes. For example, I tihnk about the heart - at some stage it went from a single to double circulation - that is a pretty big mutation! But I believe it happened, somehow.
I don't think cold to warm blooded is too difficult to believe. Then again, I'm not really a biologist - I'm sure someone else could offer a much better explanation than anything I attempt.

gentic mutation- there was a lot more radiation around at that point so mutations could concievably have occurred more often.

say a genteic mutation happened in could blooded creatures in the northern or far southern climes where it would be much colder. they would have an instant advantage over their coldblooded relatives, because they would not be dependant on the sun's warmth, and could be quick at any time of the day e.g. they could hunt the other animals whilst the cold bloods were still slow.
