    There are two answers; the most profound is the one in the Harry Potter series given as an answer to "Which came first, the Phoenix or the ashes?" The answer is the same; "A circle has no beginning"
    The other answer to the commonly asked question "What came first the chicken or the egg?" would be "The rooster"

    This is a fairly easy to answer, at least in English.

    The egg came first. The hen is listed many pages later in the dictionary.
