    Possibly MG, bloodwork can confirm if in fact it's MG.

    Since there is not much swelling it looks more like MG, but coryza usually stinks. I haven't seen either one except in pictures. Either one will make a carrier of him and infect your flock. Antibiotics will on treat symptoms not cure the disease. Here is a link for you to read about these diseases and others: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
