I bought a huge bag of pine shavings for the coop. I'm worried about mice and other animals looking for a winter home getting in the bag. Where should I keep the shavings to prevent any unwelcome guests? Trash can with a lid?

Trash can with a lid or large heavy duty garbage bag sounds good to me.

I keep my wood shavings in large black plastic bags up against the side of my house. I just make sure the tops are twisted and positioned so no water will get inside the bags. I have never found rodents in them, even after months of storage.

I store them on the side of the house that you don't see easily from the main drive/parking area.

(But, yes, my house does look very white trash)

Its only white trash if your neighbors say it is. If you don't have neighbors-well then its just cluttered
