    I dont know how you determined that your flock has LL. LL is transmittable through eggs affecting chicks. It is not transmittable to humans. Here's a link to respiratory diseases in poultry, scroll down to Lymphoid Leukosis (LL.)
    Good luck with your decision whether to eat the eggs or not.

    We had a necropsy... he said he saw the lesions in the liver and other organs. He said it wasnt transmittable but I thought I would see if anyone else had more information.
