    The chicken or the egg? I think it was a chicken because if it was a egg, it couldnt incubate its self. What do you think?

    Well neither really. They just evolved. I own a plaster cast of an Archopterix skull. This is supposed to be one of the first real "birds". (I was a dinosaur freak at age 5; memorized all the long latin names and collected fossils ((I have a buncha real ones!!)). Hey, I was an unusual kid ((still am)), okay? For instance, In kindergatren ((also age 5)) I read the first Harry Potter by myself... good times... good times...)

    People, you are going about this the wrong way! You must track backwards, and ask what came last....it was the chicken poop!
    Now carry on from there....
