      I think the egg. So 2 birds from different species mated and the egg that came out was a cross of their genes and was a chicken.
      But a quick Google search shows British Scientists have proven the chicken came first, not the egg because apparently the formation of eggs is only possible thanks to a protein found in the chicken’s ovaries.

      Now we just have to figure out why the chicken crossed the road…

      Shona’s answer is great! I can’t add anything to it.

      Shona nailed it, the only thing I can add is that the chicken was probably just trying to get to the other side.
