What came first the chicken or the egg?
The earliest known egg-laying amniotes appeared during the Carboniferous
period some 300 million years ago. Chickens belong to an order of birds (the
Galliformes) that made their first appearance in the Eocene epoch some 50
million years ago.
So the amniotic egg clearly came first.
