No, absolutely not. Hens sit on their eggs until they hatch. They actually nestle their feathers above and around the eggs and keep them warm, but people say they are sitting or setting on their eggs.

No they sit on the eggs to incubate them. To be more specific the female hen does and not the rooster.

Do you need a rooster to get your chickens to start laying eggs?

No, they will lay eggs even if they don't have a rooster. If you want chicks however you have to have a rooster.Yes chickens doo. they start to lay eggs at about 6-8 weeks of age regardless if there is a rooster around or not. if you have a rooster you can not eat the eggs as they may be fertile. in extreem heat or cold chickens may not lay for a few weeks expectialy if the temprature changed quickley. chickens also go cluckey, wich means they want to become a mum. they will sit on the nest if the is a egg there or not and can die if it is very hot. it is then they must be taken of the nest by force. when nesting they can be quite frocious and peek you. they will also do this without a rooster. they are great to have around and make your home feel that little bit better.

Is it possible to hatch the eggs in your refrigerator?

Chickens are one of the few animals that will lay infertile eggs. The eggs in your refrigerator would never hatch. That would be true even if they had never been in your refrigerator but had been in a nest. (A few chickens are put in pens with roosters. They lay fertile eggs. The eggs hatch and produce little chicks. Some of those will again grow up to be put in pens with roosters. Others will take the jobs of laying eggs. Others will become food.)

Actually, roosters are usually the only kind of chicken eaten. Hens are kept for egg laying and a few roosters stay on a farm to fertilize the many females.
