First off I LOVE this idea! I would say you could put about 4 or 5 chickens in there (assuming they will have an outside area as well). If this were my coop I'd put wire over the windows with the shutters. Screw it on like PP did. You could use an even smaller hardware cloth so the coons can't mess with it. Also put some latches on the windows so you can close it up, also a latch on the door. I'd put plexiglass over the bay window just because there is no way to close it. Put hardware cloth on the door as well but maybe reinforce it with a piece of wood screwed inside for extra coon protection. And then of course a roost inside and nest boxes. Maybe you could build them onto the bay window so they are outside the coop. Easier access for you and space saving for the chickens. There are a million ideas in my head for you I just don't know how to say all them but I hope this helps!!
