How can you tell a hen is ready to hatch a egg?
Observing a hen right before her eggs hatch, you will notice
that she is clucking very softly to the eggs and she is more
reluctant to leave the nest for food and water. She knows the
chicks will be hatching soon and wants to make sure she is there
when it happens.

To hatch an egg, you need a rooster to fertilize it by mating. If this has happened, the hen will lay her eggs, one a day, and sit on them for about 21 days, or until the majority hatches. Some may not hatch, and some may not be ready to hatch at 21 days. If a few don't hatch and you want to save them, you need to candle them first to make sure they…

If an egg hatches only when the hen mates with a rooster otherwise the laid eggs never hatch. What is the purpose of hen laying eggs regularly if it is not meant to hatch?
If the chicken egg doesn't hatch, it might not be ready to hatch. If it has been under the mother hen or in the incubator for 21 days (and has been turned for the first 18 days, twice a day), it should be ready to hatch. Some chickens can hatch at 21-24 days though. If they won't hatch at all, they are probably dead, maybe from being too cold, maybe not even fertilized. They also…
Chicks can hatch from any egg, conventional or organic, if the egg has been fertilized by a rooster mating with the hen that laid the egg. Most eggs sold in retail stores are from flocks that include only hens and no roosters, so if you do not know where an individual egg came from, the chances are great that that egg will be infertile and not hatch.
