Chicken feed has a shelf life of just a few months. Improperly stored, feed may be damaged be mold or devoured by pests in a matter of days. Sturdy storage containers are a must, but keeping feed off the ground out and in an established location ensures chicken feed, scratch and other coop supplies will be there when you need them. This basic shelf and counter design will hold two ten-gallon galvanized bins and a plastic bin for non-perishable needs like bedding or oyster shells. With a raised countertop perfect for sorting eggs or hypnotizing chickens, this storage solution is an easy addition for the well-maintained coop.
