Goats (of course), Rabbits, chickens, turkeys, ducks and maybe quail soon
I have started milking my FF a couple days ago. She had a single kid and he is 3 weeks old now. He is separated from her at night and is with her for 12 hours during the day. I am getting about a quart of milk a day. Is this a normal amount? She weighs about 40 lbs. She is not quiet a year old. She got pregnant way too young when a buck escaped into her pasture. She is doing fine though and has kept great body condition. My other question is, it doesn't seem like she is totally milking out. Her udder still looks big and hard. I don't want to keep her on the milk stand too long. Should I be milking her out more or is this a normal udder for a FF. She is my first FF.
