Is it just me or does it looks like the chicken has no wings? A nice logo though.

The logo is quite cool.

Love the fact that the chicken is looking down at the egg… I can almost hear in my head: “Bawk?!”

I have always loved this logo.

I like the font. Should not be 2 paradoxes in symbol? One the postition of the egg and 2nd the rooster don’t make eggs:)

Is that a rooster or a chicken? I like this one!

Mar 4, 2009 at 2:34 am

That’s a good point about the rooster but the concept is excellent. And I think the rooster is easier to recognize in a silhouette than a chicken would be.

I can’t remember when last a logo ‘gave’ me such a spontaneous outburst of laughter!

When last did a logo made me feel so good?…and it is soo pleasing on the eye.

This world needs more of them.

Hmm this looks like a male chicken to me. He’s like “who left this in my yard?”

I don’t get the message from this logo. What is it supposed to represent the rooster and the egg?

Very skinny chicken! lol

Looks more like a cock :p

This works really well. The only change(s) I would consider are making the egg a bit larger, and possibly standing the egg upright.

Mar 5, 2009 at 5:48 am

Love the concept, very well thought.
I think the design works great too.

Mar 6, 2009 at 12:55 am

well, it’s even more a paradox if the male layed the egg!

stop asking and start philosophing!

I like it. Simple on first tought, this logo has more than meets the eyes! (Cue transformers theme)

One of my personal favs for quite some time now. Such a clever concept. And the red and black works perfectly and fits with the concept.

Mar 7, 2009 at 4:56 am

Very clever and clean… one of my faves as well!

Ah the ages old question…will the worm come out of the hole…ok I’m being silly. One of the greatest logo ever…in my book;)

I expected this logo to be awarded “Logo of the Month’. Why not, especially when it received the most votes?

I used to have money but after 6 months of a 10 Roosters per day habit I am now broke

This is one of my all time favorite logos. I first saw it in the “Big Book of Logos (can’t remember what edition)”. Great concept.

“What came first the Chicken or the egg” is such a recognizable paradox that I don’t know how a concept could fit the title any better.
