… Okay. We might know the ostensible scientific answer to this question, as our egg-laying dinosaur friends have so helpfully pointed out, but still, there are plenty of things you can ask about chickens vs. eggs besides which of them came first. Which is tastier? Which is healthier? Which speaks to you the most on a deeply emotional and existential level???

No matter what question you’d like to ask, it’s time to determine the answer. Pick a team, Eyewirers!
