Hello, I'll be building a Duo coop. On one side for Saipans, & they're not cold tolerant. What would be the best Insulation for the interior of the walls?
The coop materials for building will be from pallets. If that helps any?

None. I think you know that insulation is made moot with adequate ventilation, which is so very important.
It can also be a great habitat for rodents....and the chickens will eat if it they can get at it.
Not sure how you'd keep a tropical bird healthy in a frigid climate.
Tried to do some searching, but see you already have.
Best of luck finding some good answers

So, you don't have any good Insulation suggestions? The design is gonna be tight walled to help with rodent prevention.

Sliding screened windows is what I was gonna use for light in the coop(s), not sure of the vent design yet though.

The birds won't be able to eat the insulation that'll be sealed into the walls, so I don't know where you got that from.

I just need a good Insulation to keep warmth inside the coop with the Saipans.
