And the debate goes on...did the egg come first??

Or was the chicken here first? And just how can that be?

In my opinion God created all the living things first... equipped with what was necessary to reproduce.

At one time I had like 53 chickens all running around...following me , cackling, laying eggs I even sold them, the eggs that is...Fed them well with all organic food and they ran around eating bugs for me and keeping my yard fresh...it was great.

Even had babies running around, riding on momma's back and all...our rooster was the Cock of the walk...let me tell you. and a perfect alarm clock...well to me anyways...could be some people didn't like being woken up in such a manner...but he was like a watch dog and took care of His Ladies...

Nature is amazing and one day I heard the girls cackling away early morning...and I just knew something was up? besides me...I had heard these frantic cackles before...so I ran out to the backdeck to investage...and to my surprise under these huge bushes in my backyard was this Bald Eagle stealing the baby chicks...When I came out clapping my hands He backed out and spread those enormous wings with the last of the 12 babies...I think He had a family to feed also...He flew off with a wing spread of a mile I swear...

But that wasn't the last we saw of him...One afternoon the grandchildren were here and we were all outdoors and heard one of our girls cackling loudly and my then, 7 yrs old grandson was chasing this enormous Bald Eagle...he was a foot away from his back tail yelling "leave her alone" there were chicken feather's flying. my grandson yelling, his mom screaming "what's wrong"? the dog barking, the rooster screeching it was mayham...Well we managed to scare that Bald Eagle and save the chicken...all the Eagle managed to get were a few of her tail feathers...

There are so many stories to tell about my chicken daze but I need to get my stories straight first and also learn how to write...

I have found a few pictures to help you understand and also bring a smile or two...At the end is a very funny video to illustrate the human versus the chicken versus a machine

For some reason I have been tickled by hubbers like Sweetie Pie, Countrywomen, Dotti1, Sandra rinck ,VioletSun to name a few...and I can't stop my giggles....so here we go...seems I am a visual person...:o)

Love the video, in which the eggs came long before the chickens!

Mind you, considering that the species "chicken" would have evolved from a reptilian ancestor, as did all birds, and reptiles are egg-layers, the egg must have come first. The difficulty comes in deciding when something called a "chicken" could first be identified as such.

At heart, this is an impossible question to answer because it makes no sense as it stands. The impossibility is similar to that faced by the ladies at the egg conveyor in the video!

I like your opinion. I don't think I'll ever look at another egg the same way--just an egg--again. these are some funny and creative displays of "eggfoolary".

I skipped breakfast and after reading this, I got hungry for some eggs, pancakes, and bacon. However if I may order some fried chicken with some eggs sunny side up and see which comes first.

You are right about God creating the animals first. It's in the first few chapters of Genesis. He then said go forth and be fruitful and multiply. So then baby chickens were born. Hope your new year has started good.

Indeed you are a visual person. I'm laughing so hard I have to pee, real soon. Real soon. I don't know what cracks me up more, the video or the pickled eggs.

From the video, I am satisfied that the eggs came before the chickens. ROTFLMAO.

As for the eagle and the chicks, well, it's a dog eat dog world out there. And I think your 7-year-old grandson will be top dog one day.

Thumbs up!

G-ma,

These days, I get sentimental easily, but I remember back when my grandmother had chickens and I would help grandpa collect the eggs. I remember thinking how amazing that was! I was a suberb girl, so when grandma and grandma moved to what was then, "the country," it was a big deal.

Good hub!
