Chicken Feed Storage

It’s important to have a dry, rodent proof storage container to store chicken feed but I also wanted it to look nice.  So I came up with this:

The metal trash can is completely rodent proof but I’ve read it can leach metals into the chicken feed so the plastic trash can serves as a liner.

This project only requires 2 supplies.  A 20 gal plastic trash can and a 31 gal metal trash can.

I had to cut the handles off the plastic trash can so it would fit.  The double lid keeps the food fresh.  It holds two 50lb bags of feed.
