Okay to worm 17 week olds?

Note sure it matters but two of the 17 week olders are silkies. The rest are standards.

No, I haven't seen worms in their stools, but I have seen two of the pullets occasionally doing the gagging motion, which makes me wonder about gapeworm.

I use a broad spectrum wormer - valbazen - and I know it kills gapeworm.
Also, do I use the standard dose - 1/2 cc for standard birds, 1/4 cc for bantams or do I have to reduce it down because they are still juveniles?
Thanks Dawg
