    My pullets found a spot with German cockroaches trapped in webs, I don't know if it's dangerous or not for them to swallow the webs. Two are Cochins that are three months and one is a one month Silkie.

    Chickens eat spiders without any problems so I doubt that spider webs will cause them any problems. You can relax.

    I think spider webs are almost pure protein, so they are pretty nutritious. Mine eat them all the time.
