What came first the chicken or the egg? This question has tricked a lot of brains. Many scholars, philosophers, and scientists have tried to find out the answer. Not only the elders but even children don’t fail to ask this question. Let’s take a look at the different logics and reasons put forward by scholars:
But before we begin to arrive at the answer; take a chill pill and have a laugh~
Some jokes that I have heard on this perplexed question

Some philosophical answers
This paradox of the chicken or the egg is quite historical. In the sense, that the Greek Philosophers have scratched their minds back then.
PLUTARCH was the first one to raise this question of who came first the chicken or the egg? It invited a lot of debate and discussion. Soon after the debate on this topic, the great question arose; “Whether the world had a beginning or not?”
ARISTOTLE, the great ancient philosopher gave arguments that both chicken and egg have long existed infinitely. This argument of Aristotle was favored by many other philosophers.
The riddle is still not solved, right? So the final answer is here;
The scientifically proven answer
The evolution of birds shows that the eggs have been first to come into existence before any chicken. The reason behind it is, that the bird that laid the egg did not resemble the chicken.
Yes, it was a bird that laid the egg. It then hatched into a chicken.
SO, that bird was not any chicken. It was a bird that looked like a red jungle fowl. It was the descendent of MODERN CHICKEN.
Hence, precisely IT WAS THE EGG THAT WON THE RACE FOR COMING FIRST.
