I know that you don't want to leave food where it's exposed to excessive heat or any moisture, etc, but how do most of you store your feed? I keep mine in the garage. When I open a bag, I pour it into a plastic container or metal trash can-type container, but sometimes my container won't hold it all and some stays in the bag. I then roll the bad down and use a large clip to hold it closed. The garbage can type container I leave in the coop so I can easily fill the feeder. The plastic container stays in the garage. Both places get hot in the summer and cold in the winter, but the feed is protected from bugs, rodents and any chemicals that may be used in the area. Any feed still in the bag is where I draw from first. Is this okay? I only buy one bag at a time, so it doesn't age out. I check the label when I buy it so it's within date, but different vendors use different codes and store staff doesn't often know hou to read the code. Also, if I buy scratch or treats, how do you store it? That's not something we use a lot of and it can get an off smell no matter how well it's stored, so then I just pitch it but should I have done something different? Can we get just a short and concise rule of thumb on feed purchase, storage and use? Thanks.
