Just for fun I've decided to move some coments from a post here since I've had some new input:


So what was first the chicken or the egg?
(Leo)


George Carlin answered this question quite nicely.
"The chicken is an actual chicken, while an egg is a potential chicken. Since actuality precedes potentiality [in a pristine environment], the chicken had to come first."
(Mac)


Then again... The egg is an actual egg, while the chicken is a potential egg, and even then only under ideal conditions ie it has to be a live chicken, a hen with access to a rooster .... etc etc LOL
(Leo)


The chicken is an egg's way of making another egg

This may be too technical an answer but I was intrigued. I am thus reliably informed by my medical lady wife that since birds and reptiles can produce 'n' STERILE eggs for a pastime the question does not arise and so you might as well take the next step and equate it to Adam, Eve and a bunch of withering leaves.

But, should Mr Cockerel be in a frisky mood Big Grin! and be out on the town with a bottle of corn and should he decide to put in an appearance at Mistress Hen's nestette Eek! [Help] then her eggs won't be sterile not no more..

And finally Leo, is this your likeness I see before me, but dare I say what is the black blob shaped like France by your right eye?

Thats enough of that. Ed.

There's not actually a great deal one can usefully add to this, except to ask which are the "but it is quite rare in vertabrates" exceptions and would it be wise to avoid having them as pets Confused

Thats enough of that. Ed.

I do believe you are referring to the likeness of Mr Bill Gates Esquire, here apearing as a Borg drone. A very Treky way of me to underline my Motto at the bottom with my signature as well as my aversion to M$ products that I am forced to use for my own survival.

There are in fact manny organisms that survice without sexual reproduction but it is quite rare in vertabrates. Interesting story here is that only female weeping willows were imported to Africa. Unable to reproduce through seed like usual, they survive by vegetative reproduction through branches that break off and wash down river. Where-ever it washes up, it may grow roots and turn into a tree, or not :)
