    I have a 16x20 coop with a loft above. The ceiling boards have 3/8" gaps to allow ventilation through the ceiling and hay above. I have one 16x24 louvre vent in the east gable and I am having no problem whatsoever with humidity or condensation. It sounds to me that the vents you have planned will be more than adequate.
