    Haven't seen this topic so here goes... One of my does due any day is dripping leaks occasionally from her teats. She is Boer/Nubian cross. Is this normal? Her udder is pretty big and she's a first time freshener. Looks like milk, not infection or thick like colostrum.

    Sounds like you are gonna have one heck of a milker! Since she has yet to kid, I would seriously think of using a breathable cloth tape on her teats to prevent any bacteria from entering the orifices, or even use a liquid bandage type deal...but be sure to try and be around when she kids to ensure they can nurse.
