Default pellets

Can you freeze roudybush pellets? I stupidly bought a 10 lb bag and it's a lot. If so, for how long? Trying to get the crew to eat them - snort

Thanks,
Nancy

I don't see why you couldn't freeze them for at least 6 months.
You could contact the manufacturer for specifics.

I buy roudybush in 25 lb bags. I divide that into about 5 large freezer bag's, suck the air out of the freezer bags, put them back in the roudybush bag, tape it shut, and put on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. Been doing that for a couple years now without any problems...

So you refrigerate not freeze? How long have you kept them in the fridge? Thanks Randy

That will last me between 3-4 month's. I did freeze at first, and actually like the refrigeration better. I found that the frozen pellet's seemed to get darker in color by the time I got to the last couple bags, and my bird's ate less and threw more on the floor. The refrigeration has seemed to maintain fresh like quality right through the last of it...You ever check out the roudybush website ? Some good stuff on there and that may be where I read info on cool and dry, can't remember now, but I read it somewhere...

I found this on the Roudybush site

Good food quality can be maintained by keeping your Roudybush foods cool and dry. Keeping the food cool prevents the fats from becoming rancid and also prevents the vitamins from being destroyed by oxidation. Keeping the food dry will avoid mold growth. Roudybush plastic pouches (44 oz., 22 oz., and 8 oz.) can be placed in the refrigerator to extend the use by date in 3 years or in the freezer to extend the use by date 6 years. When removing the food from the refrigerator or freezer it should be allowed to return to room temperature and then any condensation on the outside of the bag should be dried off before using. Roudybush feeds in paper bags (10, 25, and 50 lb) should be placed in a plastic bag and sealed before being placed in a refrigerator or freezer to extend the use by date. Again upon removing the food from the refrigerator or freezer let it return to room temperature and dry the condensation from the outer plastic bag before use. Roudybush products are labeled with a “Use By” date. This is not an expiration date but rather the date through which the food should remain wholesome if stored at room temperature.
