    The concepts chicken and chicken egg is used to describe how the world
    looks currently.

    So you can never say that the egg or the chicken came first, since the
    concept of chicken and egg required the other one to exist already.

    That is a general problem with living languages, even if chickens have
    changed during history, the word just moves along and always describes
    todays chicken.
