A team made up of a geneticist, philosopher and chicken farmer claim to have found an answer. It was the egg.

Put simply, the reason is down to the fact that genetic material does not change during an animal's life.

Therefore the first bird that evolved into what we would call a chicken, probably in prehistoric times, must have first existed as an embryo inside an egg.

Professor John Brookfield, a specialist in evolutionary genetics at the University of Nottingham, told the UK Press Association the pecking order was clear.

The living organism inside the eggshell would have had the same DNA as the chicken it would develop into, he said.

Stephen Hawking and Christopher Langan argue that the egg came before the chicken, though the real

importance of the question has faded since Darwin's On the Origin of Species and the accompanying

Theory of Evolution, under which the egg must have come first, assuming the question intended the

egg to mean an egg in general or an egg that hatches into a chicken.

Evolution states that species change over time via mutation and selection. Since DNA can be modified

only before birth, a mutation must have taken place at conception or within an egg such that an

animal similar to a chicken, but not a chicken, laid the first chicken egg. In this light, both the

egg and the chicken evolved simultaneously from birds who weren't chickens and didn't lay chicken

eggs but gradually became more and more like chickens over time.
However, a mutation in one individual is not normally considered a new species. A speciation event

involves the separation of one population from its parent po ...more
