    Right, the chicken as we know it was genetically different from it's it's parents. So therefore the egg has to come first because the egg is the first instance where the genetic material is the same as the chicken we know now.

    Oh, but it didn't evolve. God just created the egg already in its finished state and it turned into a chicken, and lived on the earth he created in 7 days, and the chicken was ruled by the 2 first humans, Adam and Eve. Evolution doesn't exist, don't be silly!

    There are two types of people in this world; one that believes the chicken came first. The other believes the egg did.

    :p

    Well one of those people are wrong. And I will make it my life's purpose to see that those people are locked up in concentration camps.

    But if the common chicken is related to a prehistoric chicken, it would still make it a type of chicken; a breed of chicken. And since any animal would have had to develop primordially, that would make the chicken come first even if it isn't considered to be the white chicken we know and love today; it was still a chicken.

    So the question is: are we talking about the chicken as we know it today? Or the chicken as a species.

    I would assume we're talking about chicken as a species since the common chicken we know it today is still a breed of chicken. I mean the question of this thread is obviously not referring to the birth of a chicken just decades ago, but instead referring to the birth of the very first chicken. When one is asked such a question, I'm sure the first thing that goes through their mind is the prehistoric era.
