You've got yourself a genius for a kid, OP. Just be thankful he didn't instead ask you something stupid like what an egg was.
In the case of this question, "what is an egg" or "what do you mean with egg" or the way I usually say it, “define 'egg'" is a good question because it affects the answer. If by egg you mean any egg, the egg is first because dinosaurs and fish lay eggs too. If by egg you mean an egg that came out of a chicken, the chicken must have been first, and finally if by egg you mean an egg a chicken came out off the correct answer is the egg.
Your 9 year old is awesome. If he learned this from Bill Nye, that's another young mind he has educated.
