I use small galvanized trash cans- they can hold 100 lbs. of feed. Whatever you store it in, just be sure that when you open the lid to scoop out feed, shoo out any flies that may have scooted into the can. Days later.... maggots...can you say DISGUSTING????

I was raised 20 years in Tucson so I know heat,too.

I cannot imagine, though 113 is good for the freshness of chicken feed.

I'd say buy it fresh and in small amounts, but even the feed at feed stores and the manufacture's Like Arixona Feed, all bake at the same temperatures.

I keep my chicken food in plastic garbage cans. (No bears here! just rodents of all kinds, including coons. Are coons Rodents?) I use plastic because it wears better in this Temperate Rainforest.
