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.
