In the Brooder

Hi all! We're new to chickens (and guineas) and have been looking at options for coops. Currently we have 5 chicks and 6 guineas with the plan being that the guineas will free range during the day and (hopefully) roost in the coop overnight. The chicks will have a run and be let out during the day and cooped at night. My husband found this shed and thought it could work with some modifications but what do you guys think? We're planning to put hardwire cloth over the windows instead of installing the plastic "glass" for them over the warmer months and then closing most of them over the winter. The gable vent at the top is a working vent as well. Our other option is to have a guy who builds coops make us one, but with our budget it will end up being smaller for sure.
