In the Brooder

Hi there! So I have looked all through the internet, books, and threads trying to get an idea on what the average square footage per bird is in a permanent run that they will spend a majority of their lives in if not all of it. I am unable to free-range and as an animal science major the downsides to free-ranging seem to outweigh the pros to pasture-raising. So, although I do not currently have the set up I plane to have once I am able to purchase my own property, I am always thinking of set ups. How large of a run would you make for 20 laying hens? I would like todo two connected runs so I can rotate but I am having such a hard time trying to come up with enough space for one run! Everything seems so small! So please, all comments are a help!
