My guess is that the predecessor of the chicken was some primitive ocean swimming creature that laid eggs to reproduce, like so many other sea creatures.
According to the latest scientific knowledge, the direct ancestor of the chicken was more likely T-Rex!

    The reporting of that research appears to confuse being an ancestor with having a common ancestor
      Thanks, that's a relief. So I guess it is save to go into the chicken coop again?
