Allah created the animals their mates and gave them the ability to reproduce. 


Though if you mean eggs in general, not necessarily chicken eggs, probably egg.

The egg came first. 

I cannot say much as far religion is concerned - but I can from a scientific point of view. So let me explain why the egg comes first.

Chickens are highly evolved lifeforms - multicellular. Eggs are closer to single-cell lifeforms such as bacteria. But of course it is only a paradox if you look as chickens snd eggs in isolation. If you think of both chickens and their eggs as stages of an ongoing cycle of existence and reproduction then there is no paradox.
