"Which came first, the chicken or the egg" is a common idiom in English. It's used when you want to describe a paradoxical situation where it's ambiguous which of two related things came first.
How would this best be expressed in Latin?
My initial thought is something like:
Utrum primum fuit: pullus aut ovum?
Is sum the right verb? Should it possibly be something like venio, or even the two together: Utrum primum esse veni?
