why can a hen not be successful to hatch eggs ?

Would someone let me know why a hen can't be successful to hatch eggs if she was hatched by electricity instead of her mother ? Thanks.

actually the answer to the initial question i think is an ethological one. Since the hen has not seen her mother hatching eggs, it "doesn't know how to do it".

Is there somebody also have the same experience knowing hen can't be successful in this way? Is there somebody studying on it ? Thanks for Victor's comment. But Victor's question is always an additional question not answering my question. Let me make an example, I ask who Victor is, then Victor also ask who Jollydragon is. It seems the questions are similar, but answers different. As the result, I still can't know who Victor is. :-)
