What is a long time? Eggs that are to be artificially incubated are usually stored at 5-7C (40-45F) - this is OK for at least 10 days. Many gallinaceous birds lay clutches of 10-20 eggs and they incubate only when all are laid. The eggs are left at ambient temperature for as long as 3 weeks and they will hatch fine. Very few birds start incubating from the first egg. Some eggs may chill for periods of days during incubation with no ill-effect. One example is storm petrel eggs. This is believed to have evolved in response to the possibility of storms at sea keeping birds from the nest for extended periods.

If a fertilized egg is cold and the hen has come of can the egg be reheated and hatch?

It depends on the species of bird that laid it, how cold for how long and how far incubated the egg is, but eggs can be left to cool for surprisingly long periods if incubated - in some species it can be days, but most it can be an hour or so. Under ideal storage conditions, fertile eggs from many species of bird will remain viable, if not incubated previously, for a month.
