    I have a Nubian doe that is due to deliver her first kids on May 21. Here is a pic of her udder today: www.ImageHosting.com/images/homemom/Sweetie'sUdder.jpg

    Is this unusually large for this stage in her pregnancy? I want her to be a good milk producer, however, am worried about the number of kids she may produce , her mom had 4.

    Thanks,
    Suzanne

    to homemom, I couldn't get your picturs to work, but I have 2 does, right now that look like the second udder website. IF the yare going to be good milkers, they have big udders.

    I remember going to a goat show before we got ours and thinking that the does looked like the were sporting basketballs for udders.
