Sounds like there are probably different testing requirements there.Yucatan, Mexico. The vet said no so I called the main lab and they said maybe call the government lab in Mexico City, I've written them but that's too much, nobody does it they said. Does that mean most of the chickens here might carry mycoplasma ?!? Strange!
As to recurring issues: Mycoplasma is a chronic disease. Once a bird has it, they will have it for life. Symptoms may reappear during times of stress. It will spread the disease to other birds it is in contact with. Those birds will in turn become lifetime carriers and may also have recurring issues.
