Who came first egg or hen in Earth?
Back to our original question: with amniotic eggs showing up roughly 340 million or so years ago, and the first chickens evolving at around 58 thousand years ago at the earliest, it’s a safe bet to say the egg came first. Eggs were around way before chickens even existed.
When did the first chicken have an egg?
Back to our original question: with amniotic eggs showing up roughly 340 million or so years ago, and the first chickens evolving at around 58 thousand years ago at the earliest, it’s a safe bet to say the egg came first.
Which is older, the chicken or the egg?
Eggs are much older than chickens. Dinosaurs laid eggs, the fish that first crawled out of the sea laid eggs, and the weird articulated monsters that swam in the warm shallow seas of the Cambrian Period 500 million years ago also laid eggs. They weren’t chicken’s eggs, but they were still eggs. So the egg definitely came first.
When did the first animal lay an egg?
These first came on the scene with the evolution of the first amniotes many millions of years ago. Prior to their arrival, most animals relied on water for reproduction, laying their eggs in ponds and other moist environments so that the eggs didn’t dry out.
Is the chicken, no, the egg the same thing?
The chicken, no, the egg, no, the chicken, no, the egg. It’s enough to make your head spin right off your neck. We’ve all been through the logic; most of us end up at the same place.
Where did the first chicken or the egg come from?
All chickens hatch from eggs, and all eggs are laid by chickens. This fact is nothing special; everything depends on a preexisting something for its existence. Schoolyard bewilderment sets in when our imaginations trace this line of thought back as far as possible. Where did the first chicken come from?
What was the first species to lay an egg?
Each time, tiny changes or mutations take place in the DNA. Over thousands of years, these changes create new species. Experts theorize that one such new species was the Proto-chicken, very similar to present-day chicken. When the Proto-chicken laid an egg, mutations in the DNA created the First True Chicken.
Is the chicken the egg or the chicken?
Scientific resolutions. If the question refers to chicken eggs specifically, the answer is still the egg, but the explanation is more complicated. The process by which the chicken arose through the interbreeding and domestication of multiple species of wild jungle fowl is poorly understood, and the point at which this evolving organism became…
When did birds ancestral to chickens become chickens?
So, the answer to this question is definite and not worth all the fuss about it. Not that there is a particular point when birds ancestral to chickens became chickens, but if we accept that there was such a point, then obviously that very first chicken developed from the first developmental stage (egg) to the last (old adult).
