Poultry House Spray Foam Insulation
On a hot sunny day, the average metal roof can reach temperatures in excess of 130◦ F. Most of the more common ventilation fans and systems fail at reducing such high heat efficiently.
With any poultry house, spray foam insulation applied to the underside of the roof in the ceiling will stop the radiant heat that can kill off your birds. The opposite is true during the colder months with the constant struggle to keep your broilers or pullets warm.
When you can seal in the conditioned air with the right poultry house insulation, you save a ton of money on fuel and energy costs. The fact is, you’ll be able to keep a static pressure of 0.12 or greater, seal out access for rodents and other pests and dramatically lower your energy consumption at the same time.

How Much Space Do 100 Chickens Need?
The answer varies depending on who you ask but it’s important to remember that more space is always better than less. Keeping your chickens in a super confined space can cause massive stress on the flock including but not limited to cannibalism, pecking, and rare cases even death. The rule of thumb is that for every one chicken you have you want at least 2 feet per chicken in the coop and an additional 8 to 10 square feet per chicken in an outside run.
How Many Eggs Will 100 Chickens Produce?
How many eggs 100 chickens produce varies widely on which breed of chicken you have and their age. For example, young Leghorns may lay around 300 eggs per year, Young Cochins may lay only up to 100 and Sumatras may lay 50 or fewer.
