Origin of Duckies
Assuming a parallel in species development between duckies and chickens, it is hypothesized that the egg came before the duck.
"...a team made up of a geneticist, philosopher and chicken farmer claim to have found an answer. It was the egg. Put simply, the reason is down to the fact that genetic material does not change during an animal's life. Therefore the first bird that evolved into what we would call a chicken, probably in prehistoric times, must have first existed as an embryo inside an egg." - CNN.com
However, it has been suggested that the geneticist, philosopher and chicken farmer have made a terrible, terrible error in their calculations.
Since the first ever creature we now know as 'chicken' must have been the offspring of another creature with slightly different genetic code (i.e. not a chicken), the first ever chicken must have hatched from a non-chicken egg. And frankly, a non-chicken egg just doesn't cut it.
Therefore, if the question 'which came first, the chicken or the egg' is more accurately posed 'which came first, the chicken or the chicken egg', it is clear that the chicken came first. The first chicken egg can only have been the product of the first chicken.
This theory has attracted some degree of controversy due to its chicken-centric worldview, which some consider tantamount to racism.
Frequently Asked Duckie Questions
Q: Do duckies taste like chicken?
A: Not exactly. "Admit it; you've had enough boneless, skinless chicken breasts and rotisserie chicken for one lifetime. You need to eat more duck. Duck, even supermarket duck, tastes like how I imagine chicken used to taste before factory farming: the reassuring flavor of poultry with the richness and backbone of red meat." - Matthew Amster-Burton, Pacific Northwest Magazine - Succulent Duck Legs, 02/06/2005
Q: Doesn't the intact head on a Peking Duck weird you out?
A: Only if it blinks.
