    My girls are going through a molt and I figured since they are not laying much now would be a good time to worm.

    You can, but a word of warning. Look at the active ingredient. If it is fenbendazole, commonly sold as Safeguard, the feathers can possibly grow back curly and weird. Other worming medications don’t do that.

    Are they showing symptoms of worms?

    If the answer is "no" , don't do it

    Never worm just because it's convenient
