There have been many issues with people's spawners and spawner setups on the server causing lag. So here is a basic guideline/rule set for spawners.

You can use either autospawners or spawners purchased at /warp voteshop. However here is a list of rules for them.

1. Spawners must have some form of off/on switch be it levers or rednet cables. Whatever you choose. But it most be able to be turned off or staff will destroy your spawners with no refunds.
2. Mobs must be killed at a faster rate than they are being spawned. The build up of mobs lags the server. If the mobs are dying within 5 to 10 seconds you should be fine.
3. Mob farms cannot be chunk loaded. You can use iron block loaders, but not diamond block loaders.
4. If your mob farm is causing server lag staff will break your spawners and there will be no refunds.

Most importantly please just use your common sense. If it's laggy find another way to set it up. Grinders seem to be effective. If you need information on grinders check this wiki. http://ftbwiki.org/Grinder_(MineFactory_Reloaded)

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thank you.

Note: Using MFR grinders isn't the fastest way to kill mobs, (Consumes less power, 1200RF / mob)
Use Draconic Evolution Grinders (If Available) To kill mobs much faster, which also decreases server lag potential. , and prepare a few Vacuum Hoppers to collect EXP and items.
(Around 10K RF per mob, if I am correct.)

When you say no chunkloading do you mean constant chunkloading or all chunkloading?

As stated, using iron block (online only) chunk loading is fine.

When I set up my spawners, i do not only rely on powered means of killing the mobs, i always setup spikes That they get funneled into in case my power fails for any reason. advanced item collector works much faster for grabbing items than a vacume hopper as well.

While the Advanced Item Collector (Random Things) does indeed pull items in faster than the Vacuum Hopper (Open Blocks), the Vacuum Hopper is able to pick up EXP Orb entities, converting them into Liquid XP, Which can then be put into an Experience Obelisk (Ender I/O). If you don't have random things, Extra Utilities Transfer Node (Item and Liquid) with a few World Interaction Upgrades will pick up the Items and EXP Orbs respectively (haven't actually tested the Liquid one picking up the orbs, but it seems logical that it could).

There is really no way to get eggs then, because each server reset removes all mobs hostile or friendly so you cant really advance in witchery. Witchery doesn't have to be used for bad they can be used to help out the user with dolls

Server resets don't clear passives other than maybe naturally generated ones.

I've had a very large chicken coup for a few weeks now, that automatically collects eggs. I have over 34k eggs.
Made a chicken spawner, let them fill up the pen up to a good amount, then put the spawner away.
I've seen other people seal up a single chicken over a hopper and a chest.

Just saying, they don't get wiped.

You got a spawner, which takes a lot to make. And also, for me they do get wiped, each time the save happens all the mobs in my area , hostile or friendly, get wiped
