I would like to continue to use them so I dont have to spend more money. They have been stored just outside the coop so completely outdoors. If I keep them in a building and line it with a trash bag, would that do the trick? I dont know if a trashbag would make it better or worse...

The reason your feed is wet is most likely because the handle on top is sealed and the handle on the side of the can are not sealed.when it rains it goes in through the seam.
