Who came first hen or egg and how?

Who came first hen or egg and how?

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.

Who came first the chicken or the egg?

But it doesn’t matter; at some point in evolutionary history when there were no chickens, two birds that were almost-but-not-quite chickens mated and laid an egg that hatched into the first chicken. If you are prepared to call that egg a chicken’s egg, then the egg came first.

Why milk is veg and egg is non veg?

Milk is non-vegetarian food as its molecular structure and DNA that is found only in animals. This makes it non-vegetarian by origin. Just like eggs, milk contains ‘Animal Fat’. So when you consume milk, you are, in effect, consuming an animal (or a part of it).

When did eggs come first, the chicken or the chicken?

So eggs were around a long time before chickens. Something like 150 million years before them. Of course, eggs didn’t always look like they do now, but they were still eggs. Okay, so clearly eggs came first. But ASAP science refines the question. They ask: what came first, the chicken or the chicken egg. This one isn’t as clear.

Which is the first animal to lay an egg?

The answers are: 1. The egg (species that lay eggs have been around a lot longer than chickens). 2. The chicken. That is, if a chicken egg must be laid by a chicken, then before a chicken egg can exist, there must *by definition* be a chicken around to lay it.

Is there a chicken that does not come from an egg?

In describing the creation of animals, it allows for a first chicken that did not come from an egg. However, later enlightenment philosophers began to question this solution.

Which is the oldest bird, egg or chicken?

Archaeopteryx fossils, which are the oldest generally accepted as birds, are around 150 million years old, which means that birds in general came after eggs in general. That answer is also true— the egg comes first —when you narrow it down to chickens and the specific eggs from which they emerge.

What is the healthiest chicken egg?

A healthy diet produces a healthy egg. If you let your backyard chickens free-range even a little bit, they are more likely to have darker yolks and better quality eggs. A dark orange or orange egg yolk likely has better nutritional qualities than a yellow egg yolk.

What age do chickens first lay eggs?

Generally speaking, chickens will start laying eggs anywhere from 4 to 8 months of age. Wikipedia estimates it at around 4-5 months. There are a few variables which come into play when determining when your chickens will start laying eggs, like the breed of chicken, what they’re being fed, and their environment.

When will my chicken start laying eggs?

As a general rule, chickens will start laying eggs between 16 – 24 weeks.

Which came first—the chicken or the egg?

Another literal answer is that “the egg” in general came first, because egg-laying species pre-date the existence of chickens. To others, the chicken came first, seeing as chickens are merely domesticated red junglefowls.
