This doe kidded a single doe last Thursday (her first kidding). Tonight we noticed her udder is larger on one side and a little firmer. The side it is larger on is the side the kid favors. We have to milk her out on the other side because the kid doesn't nurse from that side. The milk on the swollen side is a clearer and thinner in color. The milk on the smaller side is whiter and slightly thicker. The only other thing with this doe is she started to have some bleeding yesterday which I have heard is normal after kidding. The udder is equal temps on both sides not hot or not cold.
