    I guess its possible but I think they will be ok. Even if it did "spike" them, It wouldn't be a very serious injury. Chickens have tough feet.

    Chickens can get bumblefoot when something sharp punctures the skin on their feet. If the Staphylococcus aureus (bacteria) to enters the wound, a nasty infection results.
    To be on the safe side, pick up the sharp stuff in their yard and keep their perches splinter-free.
