All I was able to get around my area was the Corid - I'll get a wormer this weekend when I can go out to the Rural King (about 75 miles away).

What worms do you want to treat?

Well, I am wondering if I SHOULD treat them for worms - I have closely examined the droppings from the other two birds and see no signs of worms at all - and no behavioral or physical signs of a worm problem either. What are your thoughts?

Also, do I have to discard their eggs while they are being treated with the Corid?

I don't know the answer to the corid question.  Do you have an actual diagnosis that you are working with?  I'd start there before giving them ANYTHING.  IMO, to simply be giving medication without a diagnosis is pumping meds into birds without cause.  To worm them without cause (a heavy worm load) will simply breed worms that are resistant to the med you use.  Many of us are raising our birds so we can avoid un-necessary medication.  If I'm jumping to conclusions here, I apologize.  You can get a fecal float test done at your vet.  They can also check for cocci, I'm guessing.  You shouldn't even need to take your bird in.

Ephesians 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

I think you should get a fecal done, but if you can't, and their poops look 100% normal, I think I would hold off on worming for now.

Zero day egg withdrawal when treating with Corid.

I will get a fecal done - just to be sure they don't have a worm issue. Now to find a vet that will do it....
