    I don't think it will hurt much, but in the spring I would use a Shopvax to remove it.

    you might to look into your ventilation opening and see if they are big enough.

    you can also search the blog of patandthechickens on ventilation you can understand it better than me try to explain.

    Mine have been in their coop since Aug and it has become both dusty and has cobwebs too. The chooks have not yet complained to me once tho. [​IMG] They appear to be healthy and their egg production is great so I am afraid to clean it out before spring when litter gets changed. [​IMG]

    Seriously, I think only thing to be concerned about is quality of air inside, security, and cleanliness. (daily poop removal)[​IMG]

    cobwebs mean spiders
    spiders eat flies
    chickens eat flies and spiders
    sounds good to me
