Well chikens do have the genes to make teeth and long tails so this could possibly happen but the chances are very low that both ancesterial traits would show up in one indevidual.

but is this a chicken? When, on the long evolutionary scale from dinosaur to chicken can you actually look at an animal and say 'that is a chicken' and it must have hatched from an egg...

well my opinion is, what layed the egg that what we now call a chicken, was not a chicken, the chicken evolved, QED the egg came first *ding* round 1

I'm a zoologist. It makes sense. The only problem is that on the evolutionary trajectory from one species to another, there almost never is any one point where you can say 'now its a chicken', its a gradual thing.

true, i agree with that, but in my opinion, there is still a definitive moment, somewhere where it more resembles a chicken than i dinosaur or whatever it was before... well i think so anyway

I guess if you give a chicken a very specific definition, then there has to be a generation where it first meets all the criteria
