you can do it under a broody hen or in an incubator. I wouldnt try otherwise. The eggs have to be at certain temp[masked], but also need humidity and more humidity when they are ready to hatch. If you dont provie it the babies will get stuck in the shell. If you dont have experience you will have a disaster. I suggest buying even a basic incubator and following instructions or use one of your hens when she is broody...maybe in the spring. This is not a good time of year for hatching either way unless you have a good place for them to grow up until they are stable enough to go in your coop.
