Safe to store feed outside when below freezing ?

First winter in New England with 5 hens. I feed pellets stored in a metal trash can in an unheated shed.
Will the feed quality suffer from fluctuations in freezing temperatures? Should I bring it inside to a warm basement?
The pellets seem fine and I have not noticed any moisture issues.

Welcome! Feed will lose vitamins as it ages, and might be more of an issue in hot weather than cold. I plan to use mine within two months of manufacture, as dated on the feed bag. Don't store it long in any weather. Mary
