That's not too early. All does are different, most first fresheners will start about 6-8 weeks out, but some will wait until just before kidding. Older does especially like to wait until right before they due sometimes to start an udder.

hmmm... I'm talking about prior to kidding, not sure on the OP but if it is after breeding then I would be assuming the doe is due sooner than you think or you are like me and seeing things ;)

Are you talking 10 weeks prior to kidding or 10 weeks after breeding?
My first doe started filling at 10 weeks pregnant. (already given birth, so sure about my dates) Her utter was fairly big, because our neighbor asked us if we were milking her. I said no, she is not a dariy goat. My second doe is not showing any signs at almost 10 week pregnant.
