    Is that the run size also, like total?
    If so that seems too small for that many in my opinion.

    For 20 chickens you need a 20x10 foot run minimum and a 10x10 foot coop.. Or approx. 10sq feet of run space minimum per bird and 4sq feet coop space per bird...

    Thanks a nice size for a coop with 20 birds, but a little small for a run. It really depends on how you have it set up and if they get to free range during the day.
