    She's precocious. That's a good sign she will be a heavy milker.

    Thanks Goatkid. I just didn't think that her mama's hormones should still be affecting her. I could probably get a cup of milk from her now. Her udder is that full. Probably not a good idea, but it would make her a lot easier to stand for milking when she's older, yes?

    Has this goat you speak of been in with any bucks? Because At so little as 12 weeks, goats can become pregnant. About 4 days before she kidded, i discovered my 8 month old goat was gonna be a mommy, because she had milk in her udders, and sure enough, she had a little billy goat in with her for the first few months of her life.
