    We have a doe who is not pregnant nor has ever been who is udderly full of milk. Has anyone ever had this problem? I can guarantee 100% that is not bred nor has ever been. She also is losing a little hair but not pulling it like a soon to be mom would. HELP?

    The only thing I can think of would be a hormonal imbalance.

    You're absolutely positive it is actually "milk?" Is it white, or more of the clear, colostrum nature? Very watery, or thicker?

    Yes I am sure it is milk. We even put a kit from a different doe with her to see if she'd let it nurse and she did. How weird is this? We have never had anything like this before. And remember she has never been bred.
