System for emergency seed supplies

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.

Emergency seed supplies

 

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.

Who’s been eating all the seed?

    I hope those greedy boys appreciate all the care and planning that is done for their benefit! (But to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever encountered such a thing as a grateful budgie …)
