I looked at your website. If it is MG they will probably get culled. I don't want an MG flock. My chickens are breeders so that will probably be the best thing. If I do cull them can I barrie them?
You could cull a sick bird and send it to your state vet to get it tested. What state are you located? MG is a disease that cannbe common in flocks. It can be passed through hatching eggs. Treating a chicken with MG with antibiotics will not keep the chicken from still being a carrier for life. There are about 5 or so respiratory diseases, and some have similar symptoms. Here is a good link with symptoms of MG, coryza, infectious bronchitis, ILT, and aspergillosis:

I looked a little closer a the sebright, she has an absence? It's on her face by her beak. It has a brown/red dote in the middle. So Intook her away from the other hen and now she's in a cage. There is a fowl smell now. I can try to get pic if you like
