should I worm all my birds or just the infested ones?

    My husband called me this morning to tell me that our 4 little 2 month old EE have round worms in their feces. I have two other groups of birds, some about a year old and another batch that is only 3-4 weeks old. None of the other birds are showing signs of worms, but they all free range together out in the yard during the day.

    Should I worm all the birds or just the ones that show signs of worms?

    I agree. If you see that a couple of them have worms, chances are good that they all do.
