Hey out there were Eggbert, Eggberta, and Egglittle. We were created to make you smile. So did the chicken come before the egg? Do you really want to know??? Eggs, generally speaking, existed before chickens did. The oldest fossils .... After all, understanding the question based strictly on Genesis, the chicken would come first. ... These books teach that animals were created at the beginning of the world; hence the hen did not come from the egg but from nothing.”. So now you know. We would look really great on your mantle! In your Galley! We Don't squawk, We don't eat, we don't cost much, We would make the perfect gift! Buy us we need a comfy home.
