Hello! I am wondering if anyone has some advice on storing chicken feed. I usually kept my chicken feed in an old wooden chest-like box that sat inside the chicken coop. We have been having some rodent problems this past summer and lost a lot of good hay and feed to them. I was thinking about using these old barrels I found out behind the barn. They were exposed to the elements and contain a bit or rust on the inside and outside. I was wondering if I could store my chicken feed in them. They do not have a lid, but I can place a wooden board on top to keep pests out. I would keep the feed in the bags inside the barrel, and store them inside a shed attached to the coop.
