Depends on what length the panels are going to be but I personally dont like working in anything less then a 50' pen.

I was just researching this earlier today on google. What I found was: Decide the diameter of your pen--50ft, 60ft whatever. Multiply by 3.14 for the circumference and divide by the length of your panels. Then you have the option of rounding up or down. Hope that helps.
