    Good Question. I really don't know either. It seems like all my does bags dry up about the same time, but I guess it depends on if the baby sneaks a drink. I had a doe that I thought was totally dry, she had been away from the babies for like 5 weeks. I had them at a show and I stalled them together and those little boogers, they managed to get her going in full form again, and we sold the babies right at the show, so now she in huge again, and we have to go throught is all over again.

    This Mom still has one kid with her, but I don't think she's nursing-I milked her just a tad equally on both sides for a few days and thought she was going dry, but this am one side is noticably bigger. Hopefully somebody will chime in here!
