Why worm conures?
by: The Avian Vet

Quoting Dr B:

You do not need to deworm your birds unless you have outdoor birds that have access to the ground (dirt floor aviary for instance), then these birds should be checked annually with a fecal screen, but not dewormed unless parasites are found on exam. ABSOLUTELY never use over-the-counter medications for any reason, and don't give meds without the supervision of an avian veterinarian.
