    We had chickens show signs of Coryza this past winter. Most of the flock got infected. It also could've been MG but we never had it tested. We closed the flock and are about to kill them this month. We ate the eggs with no problems. Is it safe to eat the meat? Thank you for your input.

    there is no known human health risk... but I would never tempt it a sick bird that dies goes to either predator bait or compost in my opinion. But again no known health risk as it is a bacterial infection from the environment it should be ok to eat.
