    Di Dee 1,

    And you s-t-a-y with men like that!!!?

    Time to start thinking of getting away from them if I were you and find yourself a decent man IMO. Then you and "pretty" can live a normal life in peace.
    If my OH thought like they do, he would find his testicles glued to his leg with super glue before I left him for good !

    Hugs to you and Pretty Di Dee.

    Old fashioned attitudes and entrenched behaviours can be hard to change.

    The abortion injections can be given until 54 days. It can cost a couple of hundred dollars but you are right, the cost pales in comparision to the cost of a c-section or similar dramas.

    The ultrasound obviously adds to the cost though...

    She should have started showing at about five weeks or more, so you could be cutting it fine. Some youngsters don't show much at all though.

    If it is too late you can try the option of putting her into hiding until the pups are weaned. You would probably need someone you trust to mind her while she raised them.

    Edit to add - yes, it is certainly against the law to kill newborn pups because they are inconvenient. Maybe you could mention that?? Aggravated Animal Cruelty is a serious matter these days...

    I used to have an aviary full of budgies. Trouble with taking them to the vet, and we did, was the vet couldn't usually do anything useful. Sometimes birds just die for no apparent reason.

    I hope there is more knowledge about them now. I guess there should be for chooks.

    That sounds like a good idea. Why put yourself through all the stress. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.
