The chicken-egg problem

The question of whether the egg came firs or the chicken is what I address in my latest article for the New Indian Express. Although I knew that the egg must have come first (see the article as to why), I did learn something new about the chicken which clearly answers the question of which came first. But the question is not a straightforward, since it also questions our understanding of what a chicken is, which in turn, leads us to the problem of a species not being a group with clear boundaries (I have talked about that earlier). So read it and see if you are convinced of the answer.
