Comments & ID Thoughts

I'm curious as to what kind of spider this is. I'm not sure if this is a young yellow sac spider, but it has a light colored stripe on its back and spots on its legs.

Found it outside near our chicken coop, and the standard sized nail next to it is a perfect size for scale. Really neat looking critter.
