If a turkey is sick, can you still butcher?

I think one of my turkeys has blackhead. I have her on antibiotics and plamn on butchering on the 3rd. The ackage say have the birds off med for 4 days prior to butchering. If I do that and the bird is still showing signs of being sick, is it safe to butcher? If the other turkeys/meat birds are showing no signs, i assume they are good to go.

Off the topic, how big are your colored rangers? Heres a pic of mine at 9.5 weeks
