Not in the way I suspect you want it to. What do you think 'instinct' is?

Also - How much do you know about evolution, natural selection etc?

I posted some links earlier, if you need an understanding. If they don't help, I'll try to find something a bit more simple and straightforward.
My question is not related to the evolution or natural selection as you think but may be one of the reasons cause them.

You answered ‘I doubt that the hens "know" that an eggs needs incubation. It's likely an instinct that some were born with to cover their eggs for protection etc. This had the bonus effect of incubating the eggs’

The instinct in your answer is very clear. If you have more clarification to avoid any misunderstood please let me know.
