Made a friend! (If you dont like spiders move on!)

So, recently put a garden of plants around my chicken coop, I have cucumbers, various beans and sunflowers growing around the chicken coop.


Today I noticed this bad boy in the top corner of the coop.


S/he is about the size of my hand, freaked me out until I found out its just a common black and yellow garden spider! It's going to have a feast with all the bugs around. Doesn't look like they harm chickens, but if that isn't true let me know.
I am not a fan of spiders but after I found out these are common and not venomous I felt a little better. Still terrified to go in the coop and turn the shavings, but we will get there.
