I am intrigued. Did we ever find fossils with baby chicks inside mother chickens?

The answer is chicken came first. This is because chickens use to reproduce by live birth, but bird flu and other natural disasters often killed off large populations of the pheasant family instantly. To fight against extinction, chickens evolved over time to lay eggs so mother could hatch a whole bunch of baby chicks all at once.

I can answer this one with a joke: One night the egg rolled off the chicken. He lit a cigarette, took a big puff and said, "Well, that settles that." :)
