SWELL Kids Artist Statement – Who’s Nest?, Gerry Brown & Just Potts

Who came first: The chicken or the egg?
Some would say the egg came first; others would say it was the chicken. Then when you think about it again, it makes sense for the chicken to come first to lay the egg. However, there needs to be an egg for there to be a chicken. But how would there be an egg if the chicken doesn’t lay it? If you are as confused as we are, then you are not alone.
