The Eggylogue

"Which came first? The chicken or the egg?"

Many find this question unanswerable assuming the egg referred to must be a chicken's egg! In fact, chickens have been around only for thousands of years... the egg has been around for millions of years before the arrival of the first birds about 150 million years ago! Dinosaurs from whom birds have evolved laid eggs.

So the answer is "The egg!"
