    Ok so I have two does a beautiful Nubian and a cute little Nigerian dwarf both were bred by a mini Nubian or at least should be they were bred late December early January. I started to see some behavioral changes in both of them and some udder development both pretty consistent with each other but the nubians udder hasn't gotten much bigger over the last month while the Nigerians had doubled both seem to be showing width wise and I need some help.[​IMG]

    I'm not sure what help you are asking for. The major udder development takes place in the last two months of pregnancy. You will also see changes in the vulva. It tends to get a little puffy. You might buy a book or two on goats. Storey's Guide to Raising Milk Goats would be a good place to start.
