i am building my coop for my little chickies. im almost done. all i need is a run. i have been thinking about using a 10 x 10 dog run. will it be enough for 6 hens? i am worried it wont be but i thought i would ask all of the people who know what they're talking about!

10x10 should be plenty... Here, you can calculate it yourself!!!!

10X10=100. 10 sq. feet per bird, for 6 chickens, that's only 60... I think you should be fine.
Also make sure to cover it!
