Speaking about all kinds of eggs: The egg, since there are many many more ancient creatures that already laid eggs.

Speaking about chicken-eggs: The chicken, siince only a chicken can lay a chicken egg. The egg the first chicken came from was laid by an almost-chicken-bird which therefor also made an almost-chicken-egg

The chegg came first. That's my answer and that's that.

The KFC Colonel said the chicken comes first. In his Easter Feast that is.
But he's only a cartoon so what would he know?

In prebiotic chemistry on Earth billions of years ago, zinc most likely was the first effective nonenzymatic polymerase. Zinc remains an essential component of all DNA and RNA polymerases examined today. With a poly C template, Zn2+ ions alone can catalyze the assembly of an activated GMP derivative (guanosine 5'-phosphoimidazolide) into poly G chains 30 to 40 residues in the natural 3'-5' linkage. Although other metals are catalytic, Zn2+ ions produces the greatest fidelity.

Zinc's function as a nonenzymatic polymerase suggests an inorganic answer to the age-old question, "Which came first the chicken or the egg?"

Well, obviously it wasn't humans because we can't answer this feckin question!! Maybe we should develop a system of communication with chicakens in order to find out where they came from. Then, we'll know if they came from eggs or if they bore eggs. How ya like them apples??

Ever seen an Alice with a blossom like that? Come to think of it, did you ever see an Alice??
