I have a doe who is supposed to be a first freshener any day now. I'm starting to wonder if she has a precocious udder. I leased a buck and he left April 13th so that was the last possible day she could have been bred. Thursday, September 5th was 145 days later. I never noticed any signs of her coming into season after he left, but then again it was over the summer.
The first day I noticed any udder development was July 13th. Here we are 8 weeks later at 150 days. I've been putting her in a stall and feeding her one flake of alfalfa every night for 3 weeks now and I started her on sweet feed two weeks ago as I was fully expecting her to be pregnant.
However, her ligaments feel completely normal today and she's acting as happy and normal as can be. Should I be on standby for the next few days? Or is it pretty much safe to say I should be watching for her to come into season and attempt to breed her again?
