Welcome to The Goat Spot! It is possible for does to develop precocious udders which I believe is what you are seeing here.
have they been around any bucks?Hi I have just bought two goats they are twin sisters and 2 year old, they both only have 1 developed side udder and other side is tiny. The last owner told me that they have never had kids, and that they are not pregnant. I’m wondering if this is normal. Please let me know if any has see this before. Thank you.

Hi oh thank you so much for answering, I was fussing over them today. Well the big side is soft and warm, they dont seem to be in any pain, once the shock of me grabbing their udder wore off they both relaxed and let me have a good feel, so I don't think they are in pain at all. If they are pregnant does one side of the udder grow first and then the other?precocious udders is possible, if not pregnant.
Good milkers can do that.
Keep an eye on it.
Is it soft or hard feeling?
Hi oh thank you so much for answering, I am so happy to have found Goat spot, is there anything I can do for precocious udders?Welcome to The Goat Spot! It is possible for does to develop precocious udders which I believe is what you are seeing here.
precocious udders okay thank you so much for your answer
I don't think there is. Just make sure to watch it for signs of mastitis. They usually develop normally during pregnancyHi oh thank you so much for answering, I am so happy to have found Goat spot, is there anything I can do for precocious udders?
The last owner said that they were with a buck in the field but after they separated they went into heat again so she didn't think they were pregnant.have they been around any bucks?

Okay thank you. I just watched a video where they said to milk them so infection does not happen. I will try this tomorrow.
Hmm, sounds suspicious to me.The last owner said that they were with a buck in the field but after they separated they went into heat again so she didn't think they were pregnant.
okay thank you, I will. thank you so muchI agree with possible PU. Since they are lop soded...I wouldnt mess with them more than checking fluid for infection.
If not bred already the beat way to eventually it Is to breed them 😉
Okay so because her swollen side was milked I noticed that her other side is a little full so I also milked the other nipple, I cleaned with warm water. Milk came out of this side, not the see though liquid... if anyone knows what’s the problem please let me know.Hi so I read that you can smell if it is infected if the milk close out. I tried in the beginning but it seemed blocked so with warm warm I washed her udder, and. Took of Some dry stuff, slowly as I milked the liquid came out and then some more blocked stuff and then I noticed my goat was seeming really relieved as I milked her so I just got all the liquid out. It is not milk but a almost see through liquid, it does not smell all bad so I don’t think there is infection. Please give me your thoughts, did I do the right thing? My goat does seem happier... and does any one know what this clear liquid is?

humm no not thick I would see like water even. I will go to the vet tomorrow to see what I can get for them. unless you know what I could buy perhaps from an online shop? thank you so muchIt wouldn't hurt to do a round of treatment. That "milk" looks a bit caramelized color? And is it thick?
