The chicken, like all birds have internal fecundation. After fertilisation, the zygote forms. In the animal kingdome, the zygote is almost always surreuded by a nutrtive substance called vitelus. There is a lot of vitelus in the chicken egg(practically everything that you eat is the vitelus). Also, to endure rough conditions, this is covered with a protective layer made out of minerals(mostly calcium). All of this takes place inside the female reprodutory organs. Then the eggs are released to hatch. They will only hatch if they have propper condition(high temperatures).
Under propper conditions, all eggs hatch resulting little chickens. this means that the female can not lay eggs by itself, the ovules need to be fertilised by the male first
Hope this answeres your question
This is a Ph.D question?!
The chicken can lay an egg without fertilization just as a human female can ovulate without a male involved. The result of course is the egg remains an egg and does not develop into an offspring.

Thats what I thought. A Phd question and you are completing it in 3 months. Is this your actual Phd or a course your taking so you can carry out a Phd later (if such thing exists)? If your Phd is something related to this topic then you should know the answer.
Hope everyone else has given you the answer and good luck

Thank you, come again

Of course yes!!!!
I can't believe that's a Ph.D question.
If the question like that, I'll take a Ph.D degree in Bio right after I've graduated from my school then..
