Is there a test for Marek's disease that can be done while the sick chicken is still alive? A blood test? A fecal matter test?

Sounds like you need the services of a veterinarian. Here is some information about the disease from eXtension: Marek's Disease.

The article states, "There is no specific treatment for Marek's disease. Any bird suspected of having Marek's disease should be reported to the State Veterinarians."
