I would just keep an eye on it that it doesnt turn into mastitis but other than that I would just leave it alone...: ) however, If it gets huge, uncomfortable for her and its even sided you can test a bit of the fluid to see if its real milk or a watery version. Some does can be milked from a PU with no issues..others will empty out then not produce any more..the down side of milking is you open the orphus to bacteria..so only do if really necessary;) Do not milk if she become lopsided,,, this will cause her to always be lopsided. Usually the udder is only good on one side and sickly on the other...
I would breed her as soon as she is both old enough and large enough for a real udder that Im sure will amaze you!

Thanks so much for the info! LOL! I had no clue this could happen so young. I will keep an eye on her for problems. Precocious is a good description for Rose herself

Ruth's precocious udder - Born 4/4/14 - pictures taken 4/22, 5/6 & 5/14
In 2 of the photos she is rearing up on the wall so you can really see her development. Her udder is very soft and has no heat or lumpy texture.

She is precious!
When Roses udder finally emptied it left her with long teats and a still obvious bag. Your girls looks very much like Roses udder did when it was full. We will have a couple of productive girls when they freshen
I'll try and post a pic later of what she looks like now.

Oh my goodness. I just looked up at the old pictures of Rose. She was so little. She has grown from a tiny Diva to a bigger Diva!
