Write a comment or ask a question... Neither of the given options r correct. This is because the chick. egg contains a fertilised egg cell inside it which at a later stage develops into a chick to hatch out of the shell, provided that the conditions r favourable.

A chicken egg is an egg that (assuming it matures without any biological problems) will develop into a chicken.

In related news, the egg came before the chicken because dinosaur eggs existed long before chickens evolved.

Wait, so the chicken came before the egg because the eggs were around before chickens were?

So an egg with a chicken inside it that was grown in a lab is not a chicken egg?
