The reptiles invented the Amniote egg, so Dinosaurs had eggs long before the bird and hense the chicken evolved.
So technicly the egg predated the chicken. ;)

Also a chicken is more specific than an egg, so I reckon eggs came first, laid by something which was almost a chicken... but not quite.

Of course, you can always check which one is smoking... :rolleyes:
