If you believe in God, this age-old question really has a simple answer. According to the Creator of chickens, and the author of the Record of their origins, chickens came first. It was on the Fifth Day of Creation:
“And God created great whales and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind; and God saw that it was good.”.
It has perplexed humanity from as early as the Ancient Greeks. So which came first, the chicken or the egg? We take a crack at this curious conundrum.
