Expanding on my previous post regarding emergency evacuation procedures (click here), I have given some thought to emergency food supplies.
I worked out roughly how much seed is consumed by (currently) 3 birds & bought about 9-12 months worth. These are stored & used on a rota system to ensure no seed goes past a certain date.
Seed is stored in a cool, dark & dry place.
This system has been in place since last summer & is working well. I tend to mix two seed mixes, so have two containers on the go. The same containers are used for long-term storage also, so I can easily move them around.
