Based on the Torah would it seem the chicken came first or the egg?
Wouldn’t the chicken have been created, from nothing, the same day as the rest of the animals?
Even taking creation out of it, it’s always been a silly question. An egg is just a stage in chicken’s process of self-replication, not vice versa. The whole question is only possible because birds gestate/incubate their embryos outside of their bodies. That’s why no one asks what came first, a human egg fertilized by human sperm or a human.
you are 100% correct. G-d created the first chickens without eggs, just as he created the first man without a human progenitor
Perhaps chicken #1 was pregnant (note that laying unfertilized eggs is a relatively modern development, from human supplied genetic modification).
So what? He created the chicken first and the egg is considered ירח אמו until it comes out (look at ביצה that doesn’t consider an egg anything until it comes out)
Welcome Back BaalHabooze! It’s been ages. Your seventh anniversary should be coming up. Mazel Tov!
