It is not a good thing to worm a sick bird. The wormer is itself a poison, should be used with care, and a weakened bird because of sickness is not in a condition to stand the poison. If they need worming, it should be done while they are in active health. I believe all wormers have a withrawal time for use of eggs. The product should specify this. Good luck, CJR
