Yes, but you have to know what is really wrong with them. That will help you select the correct antibiotics to use. If you have up to 500 birds, going for a lab test with dead and sick birds will help. What is the color of their droppings like?

I advice you call in a vet or go for lab test.

With that number of birds, better to call in a vet. I don't think lab test should be done whenever one or two birds are sick. A vet will tell you which drugs to use from his experience. It may even cost less.
