In order for a chicken to lay fertilized eggs, she must be impregnated by the rooster. He does it in normal typical fashion.

If you mean "How do they mate?" Well that is something of a problem. There is no penis or penis like object in the male (the rooster) and I've never observed mating in birds. What I've read is that they bring their rear ends together and the semen of the rooster is ejected into the cloaca of the hen. I gather it is rather short encounter (no pun intended).
