    Here's a bit of fun.
    Its a picture I recently received in an email from a guy who runs a chicken breeding business in Victoria, Australia.

    It is correct in that chickens are evolved down the reptile line a long time ago.
    It is also correct that reptiles (lizards & dinosaurs) were laying eggs a long time before some of them grew feathers & took to the skies....& then some lost the use of their wings & began running around the undergrowth.
    So to answer that apparently unanswerable question " which came first, the chicken or the egg?"
    Of course it was the egg which came first, millions of years before the chicken came along.
