No smaller than 200 sqft for the coop, and I would put at least 12 nesting boxes. As for the run, you can't make it too big. The smaller the run, the quicker it will get scratched down to bare dirt. I would make it as big as the space you have available.

General rule of thumb is 10 sq feet per bird in the run and 3-4 sq feet in the coop (although if you have bantams it can be less because they are a smaller bird).
