Look like Pillbugs, Sowbugs, RollyPolly bugs?

 

Here's link with description :  http://www.floridiannature.com/creepycrawlyinsects.htm

 

All I have ever seen are the Rolly Polly AKA Doodle bugs.

Not that I know of, but bet the chickens are a problem for those bugs.

 

But I have never seen those inside a structure, just outside around them in sand or dirt.  But read if you have a really large infestation, then they come in.
