    You need to remove that buck so he doesnt injure her or the kids if she is indeed pregnant.

    You say she has no udder at all? because thats not normal for a goat who is about to kid. They usually have some kind of udder even if it is small

    I agree with Stacey..... remove the buck.... he can hurt her.. if she is indeed... preggo....

    Do you know how to feel her ligs?

    How does she look in the private area....does she look really puffy and loose?

    Does seem odd... that she has no udder development at all... have you reached down there and felt to see... if you can feel a little udder starting... that you can feel and not see? If it is just starting... it could be 1 to 1 1/2 months to go... with a FF( first freshener)... :wink:

    Can you post pictures of her, especially one of her udder and backside?

    Is the buck in with all your does? If so, you're asking for trouble as you will have no idea who will kid when and risk the chance of the goats kidding when you're not around to help. Also, if you keep the kids with the buck he can and will breed the doelings as soon as they get in their first heat cycle. It'd be best to separate that buck from all your does ASAP and get him a wether companion.
