    I wouldn't worm them unless you see signs or symptoms of worms....as in worms in poop, pale combs, weight loss, diarrhea, general malaise, deaths, etc...

    If you are really concerned about worms and think they may have them, you can always take a poop sample to the vet for a look see.

    I can get away with that, but most people won't notice any signs until their birds are on deaths door. I say worm, especially if you have valuable birds.
