    Chey has not kidded yet.

    She has started to get an udder though, but that started awhile ago. I was wondering how far out can their udders start to fill? I think it has been over a month.

    Do you have a due date on her?

    Even with FF the udder developes around 3 months in, then the filling can start as early as a month to as late as 2 weeks before delivery, some don't even "fill" their udders ti after they deliver! My Angel now has a nice sized udder at 2 weeks fresh , when she delivered it scared me to think that she was needing to feed twins!

    Cheyenne is a pygmy, right? From what I can recall with my lateDolly, her FF was with twins and her udder filled tight the day she delivered.

    Yeah, Chey is a pyg. I don't have a good date on her. I have written on my calendar to start watching on wed, but I have already started because was just in with a buck for a few months so I don't have a firm date. I am never going to do that again. She has started to fill in, maybe a month or so ago. It seems to have been getting a bit bigger tonight.
