What I meant by the third choice is simply eternity. I'm going with the egg.

It has to be...........The egg to have come first... But  not laid by a chicken.. I think the parents of the 1st chicken  egg were slightly different...

Heh, I dare say dinosaurs laid them, which was why I voted chicken and egg.

Chicken (as a metaphor.)
If the first creatures were single celled organisms that reproduced by dividing themsleves at some point there was a mutation that lead to eggs and this "chicken" would have laid it.

Chick Born Live, Not Hatched
                    
04/20/2012
   The BBC is reporting  on  a fascinating animal oddity from Sri Lanka: a chicken that was  born  live rather than being hatched from an egg that the mother  chicken  incubated in the nest.
