    We think our little one might have worms since where he came from. What can we use? Is he old enough for anything yet? Thank you

    I suggest taking a stool sample to a vet to see if parasites are even an issue with the bird right now.
    Ivomec in the brown box injection for cattle and swine 1% sterile solution ( NOT the "plus" kind) is commonly used to worm ratites, by mouth is fine.
