I am curious if it would be better for my doe to pull her kid and bottle feed it?! She won't be one until March, her breeding was an accident. Fortunately her and baby did well! She is currently being a very doting mother, but her udder is only the size of maybe a large orange. Would it be healthier to bottle feed baby so Oreo can resume growing without putting everything into milk, or just leave well enough alone? Thanks

I wouldnt pull unless there is a good reason It would be very stressful for mom and baby, and it sounds like they have a good bond. A small udder doesnt necessarly mean shes not producing enough...I would just keep an eye on baby, make she her tummy is firm and not sunken in...give mom an extra handful of feed : ) She will continue to grow, maybe slowly but by age 2 she should Catch up to her peers

Best wishes
