We have now got the hen hut, the run sorted, and my husband is making the nesting boxes (ever optimistic). We cannot remember from looking at other hen huts if the boxes have full height partitions between them. Can someone enlighten us, please.

Some do, some don't. The hens won't mind and will probably all cram into one nestbox anyway :-D

Thank you for your reply, Dom. I am sure there will be other questions nearer the time of getting our hens.
