which came first the chicken or the egg?

found, originally uploaded by Emma Bradshaw.

on our holiday there was a chicken run and house from which you were able to collect eggs. I have never seen so many children entertained before! there were ten tents with a couple of children in each and as soon as they woke in the morning on went the wellies and they ran to see if there were any eggs by opening up the nesting boxes. The funny thing to see was the older children ordering themselves in turn depending on their waiting time, so were fair in sharing them out. The problem was there were only eight chickens! free range laying was never going to keep up with demand. Our little man was delighted with his egg, which he delicately carried to show us. We then cooked his egg and ate it - food has never tasted so good...
