I had the meaties outside this evening and was showing them where the best bugs could be found. Commercial meat birds are sorta clumsy and a bit slow, so it helps if I take them to a "can't miss" area to forage. It helps get them excited about catching bugs. So a wolf spider jumped out of the long grass and started scampering away. One of the young cockerels tried to grab it, but the spider jumped on him instead! It bit him and he jumped back screaming and fell over. The bite was so bad that after just a few minutes of flapping his wings, his whole side was covered in blood. I had to bring him in the house and bathe him to wash away the blood before his flock mates spotted it. I'll have to keep an eye on the bite. I had no idea a spider could be so aggressive.
