Chicken and Egg Both Came Before This Chicken or the Egg Video

It’s a question that many have pondered: Which came first, chicken or the egg? The obvious argument is that the chicken couldn’t have been born without an egg, but an egg couldn’t have been laid without the chicken. Folks go back and forth, and it typically descends into a cyclical conversation where each side constantly says the other is wrong without being able to really disprove legitimate assertions. It’s certainly a quandary when taken at face value, but when you break it down, as AsapSCIENCE has, there’s really only one answer.

As the video notes, eggs obviously came before chickens. So, really, the question is better phrased as which came first, chicken or the chicken egg? AsapSCIENCE comes down on the side that a chicken clearly came from a chicken egg, because if it didn’t then it wouldn’t be a chicken. Your mileage may vary, of course, but we’re inclined to agree.
