Your hens will only sit in the nest boxes to lay their daily eggs and yes they will share. I have 9 hens and they only ever use one nest box per day. I have 5 nest boxes in my coop and they all use the same one every day. They see eggs in one and they use that one. Sometimes I will find 2 hens in the box at the same time.

You will need some bars for them to sit on (roost) at night. They will not want to sit on the floor.
