Nothing can be moved except it is in potentiality to that towards which it is moved.  For motion is nothing else than the reduction of something from potentiality to actuality.

Plus I'm sure early fish had eggs. In fact, I'm guessing that most sexual reproduction takes place with eggs, so the egg.

This question is basicaly the same as asking "Do you believe God created all animals or do you believe in Darwin's theory of evolution" because if you believe in God then obviously the chicken, God made the world with chickens which laid eggs with more chickens in. If you are a believer in Darwin then you know that all animals that we have today have evolved from things before it and it's the same with a chicken. There was a bird that evolved to get its food from the ground and as it was evolving over millions of years to what we call a chicken today. There would of been an animal that was just not quite a chicken but 1 tiny step to becoming the new species (we're talking the tiniest step of evolution there is, 1 generation's worth) and that animal laid an egg which inside was that bird + that last microscopic step that classified it as the chicken species.
 
You could argue that we've done the same thing it's taken nature to do in millions of years and that's to breed certain characteristics into chickens like larger breast muscles for instance. Same thing with cows and dogs and sheep ect.

If the egg is any type of egg, then it's obviously the egg, due to evolution, each generation mutates compared to the previous, meaning the egg would obviously come first.  
  
If it is assumed that the egg must be a chicken's egg, the question becomes more complex as it depends on what is considered a chickens egg. Firstly, if a hybrid chicken laid an actual chicken's egg, containing the first chicken, then the egg came first. However, if a chicken's egg is an egg that must be laid by a chicken, then a full chicken must have laid the first chicken's egg, and must have come first. 
 
While the answer depends on how the egg is defined, an answer can be reached for every scenario.

The first chicken came from an egg. Which in turn came from some chicken-like creature, evolution happened and BAM! The first chicken.

The age old question doesn't continue to this day. It was answered by someone called Charles Darwin.  The egg came first, and it would have come from a bird slightly less evolved than a chicken.

Well, you need a chicken to make an egg, and eggs beget chickens, so if you run that cycle real fast... 
Ya stumped me. 
They were both instantaneously created at the same time.

The Egg did. 
Not like the first fucking Egg came out of a chicken.. 
There are probably thousands of other creatures out there who laid eggs way before a freaking chicken did.. Simple as that

But what was inside that egg? The Chicken!!! 
 Chicken embryos still count as chickens right? 
 
So the answer is the chicken and the egg both came at the same time.

The Egg came first because it is most likely through evolution that the creature that later evolved into the chicken only differed slightly in appearance. And when the chicken genome did occur by coincidence it is likely that it didn't develope a new reproduction system but only changed in appearance slightly. Thus the egg containing the chicken would have been birthed before the first chicken was born. 
 
So the Egg came first.

Since the modern domestic chicken is thought to be a genetic hybrid of two previous bird species, then the egg came first, from which the first hybrid was then hatched from.

I thought this was a question parents asked their children in order to shut them up for 5 minutes? Hardly an age old debate.
