will she be okay from eating a black widow spider (med. size)
Oh dear! I really don't know. I've never had that happen before. Just keep an eye on her.
so, whatever happened? was your bird ok?
I'm sure she will be fine. How many poisonous spiders do you think she eats when you aren't looking?
I don't really know but keep an eye out on her
I think the spider's poison has to be in contact with the bloodstream to be toxic, so I doubt the spider survived being pecked, eaten, and crushed to death inside the chicken. Also the stomach's gastric juices will destroy whatever poison was inside the spider.

Nothing has happend yet..... I hope she will be okay and what happend was there is this spool that is in there that they like to play and perch on and I lifted it up so they could get the crickets...
I think she'll be fine, she's probably eaten them before without you seeing
I'd keep an eye on her to see if she'll be ok but if anything goes to worse then take her to a vet
