Hello all. I am new to raising chickens, but am the proud caretaker of 3 baby Rhode Island Red chicks. They are only a week old and still inside, but I have their coop nearly completed. I want to insulate the inside with the blue insulation board that is used in home construction. My reasons are two-fold. First, it does get quite cold here in Maine in the dead of winter. Second, I have quite a few nails poking into the coop from the cedar shingles that I nailed onto the outside of the coop. My goal was to not spend 1 single additional dollar on the coop. I had all of the wood and my buddy had some cedar shingles left over from his barn. If I do say so myself, it came out quite sweet!!! My question is this - Will the chickens pull apart the blue board and eat it?? I don't mind the pecking of the blueboard, but i dont want them to get sick from eating the pieces. Any experience with this? Thanks a bunch. I've gotten a lot of info already from you folks. Ill post pics of the coop when it is 100% done.
