The theory of evolution states that species change over time via mutation and sexual reproduction. 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 eggs. These eggs then hatched into chickens that inbred to produce a living population. Both the chicken and the egg evolved simultaneously from birds that, while not of the same exact species, gradually became more and more like present-day chickens over time.

 The real question ignored by philosophers is , did those birds taste like chicken?

off course - first was an order to make it

what was first made of the order - it's up to production department, and availability of the parts

birds evolve from reptiles, all birds lay eggs. Silly question. Also who incubates the egg if it comes first?
