    I Mean they generally hatch into chickens and when grown up they are yummy to cook and eat the chicken so why don't the chicken eggs taste like chicken?

    Stolen from yahoo answers because I didn't feel like typing that much:

    "Because the meat of chicken is the bird's muscle tissue. An egg is simply the amniotic fluid(white) and the placenta(yolk) that a chick embryo will grow in. You arent eating muscle when you eat an egg, so it wont taste like it."

    I think the chicken and the egg is yummy, as long as they aren't raw.

    I just want to know what came first, did the chicken come first or did the egg come first?

    The chicken did. Evolution shows that organisms had constantly been evolving and well... then came the chicken.

    Ok, then the egg came first, because there is no chicken without an egg. :wacko:

    Dinosaurs were laying eggs millions of years before chickens existed.

    So you're suggesting... What exactly?
    That Dinosaurs laid eggs that hatched chickens?
    The dinosaurs came before the dinosaur egg. Then dinosaurs laid the egg.

    But then that means the egg came first, since the mutation happened in the egg which caused chickens as we know now to happen.

    Nano-quantum space biologist here, let me explain.
    Hypothetically speaking, let's say there was a flock of birds, that existed a million years ago, which was consisted of fat birds that reminded modern chicken, but these birds had the ability to fly. Then one time one of the birds laid an egg, and out of that egg hatched a bird that couldn't fly. That bird then fucked the entire flock and made even more of its kind. So, yeah, the egg came first probably.
    Evolution, bitch!

    A chicken is by definition an animal which lay eggs. If a chicken doesn't lay eggs, then it's not a chicken.

    So the first "chicken" to lay an egg was not a real "chicken", but it did become a "chicken" in the moment the first chicken egg was layed. So... both the chicken and the egg came at the same time.

    Probably because everything else tastes like chicken. It's sort of a cosmic yolk.
