Now you need ether an incubator or a broody hen to have this egg hatch out.
The other thing to consider is that the yolk is NOT the nucleus .. It is the food source for the baby chick to grow out from. If you incubate it and about day 8 candle it. You will see 1 or 2 baby chicks forming. If there are 2, I feel that only one will make it to the end, If at all.
