The chicken egg and the turkey egg

I wonder which one came first.

Which came first, the chicken egg or the turkey egg?

That depends on whether you mean the domesticated or the wild varieties!

Chickens were domesticated about 3000 years before turkeys were domesticated. But Meleagris gallopavo evolved before Gallus gallus.

Hi, how do turkeys lay eggs? Is it similar as chickens and do they sit on their eggs?
