Alice Shirrell Kaswell, a staff member at the Annals of Improbable Research, definitively answered this question once and for all in 2003: The chicken, it turns out, came approximately 11 hours before the egg. Kaswell came to this finding by separately mailing a dozen eggs and one (1) live chicken via the U.S. Postal Service from Cambridge, Massachusetts to New York City. Both items, sent out on a Monday, arrived on Wednesday, but the chicken was delivered at 10:31 a.m., while the eggs didn’t arrive until 9:37 p.m. Problem = solved.

Earthnut - that's a much better solution to the problem than I've seen recently.

Found this cute and informative video on YouTube asking the same question, and answering it scientifically.

I personally believe in God's creation and that the chicken and seesthru's rooster came first...then poof...an egg.
