We will b turning an old outhouse into a chicken coop it is aprox. 5x5 ft. N stands about 8ft. We have 9 chickens n 6 guineas is this structure big enough? Also how many nesting boxes should we have? I saw a space ratio per bird for inside and for the run somewhere now I can't find it

For chickens it is usually 3-4 square feet for inside, and 10 square feet outside. Of course, it can vary, because all chickens personality. I have no idea for guineas. Have fun! :)
