in reply to Which came first?

The chicken can eat, whereas the egg cannot. Thus, if a very small chicken (much smaller than what hatches from eggs normally) appears accidentally, it can survive and grow to a large chicken by eating food around it. Whereas, if a very small egg (much smaller than what chickens lay normally) appears accidentally, it just dies because it cannot eat and it doesn't have enough food in it. So I think the chicken was first and voted for it.

    An egg eats itself, all you get is a smaller chicken
