    I have MS in my flock. I just found out, and I have BCM!!!! AGHHHH!!! Anyways, if I hatch out eggs from them, will the chicks have it too. Is MS passed through with the egg? Also, Can I eat an egg layed by a chicken with MS. Can I eat a chicken with MS.

    MS?? I'm not familiar with that, do you mean MG? If so, then yes it can be passed to the chick through the egg.

    MS(Mycoplasma Synoviae) is passed through the egg, But at much slower rate than MG..The eggs are safe to eat..Over half the flocks I've tested this year has come back positive for MS...I'ts like MG(CRD) i'ts one of those diseases that most times you never know you have unless you have blood work done.....
