What we call a chicken egg came about from a DNA mutation. Therefore the story goes like this:

1) A bird (NOT a chicken) developed an egg which had a DNA mutation.
2) This mutated egg is what we call a chicken egg.
3) Once this chicken egg developed it was laid
4) A chicken hatches from this egg.

The Egg came first.

It's all about defining what a chicken egg is. What if it was the Male gamete that provided the mutation after the egg was laid.. so it was just a normal bird egg but hatched a "chicken" (which would go on to lay 'chicken eggs' instead of 'bird eggs')
