do nothing at all

The first chickens to evolve would have been the result of a genetic mutation, therefore the egg would have been first since technically speaking, an egg is simply the membrane-bound vessel inside which an embryo can grow and develop until it can survive on its own and it does not need to be ‘laid’ to be an egg.
