Finally, I finished my dog/chicken run yesterday. 10 x 10 x 6. (it's really a dog run, but I keep three Bantams in it) I can finally walk through a gate and not have bird mesh catch on my curlers in the am! It is wonderful! While I was cleaning up the old pen, I found one Black Widow spider and two Brown Widows (one with three egg sacs) under chairs and a wooden bench. I know that I should be careful around these, but what about the chickens? Has anyone ever heard of them getting bitten?
