Comments & ID Thoughts

Comb footed false black widow some type of that brown widow of some type. Hoping it's a common basement spider. It was in my basement. They ususally have large sacks that hang from our basment ceiling. We have a damp rock basement.Do they bite? Can chickens eat them without getting hurt? Thanks
