    On July 26th I bought a 6.5-month-old doe. She was around two 3-month-old bucks. I housed her in with my then 3-month-old buck and my then 4-month-old doe. I noticed about a week ago that her backside was swollen and her udders have dropped (I am not sure of the exact wording) and her teats are big. This is all a new development. Her sides also protude all day with or without eating d it usually doesn't happen excepts when she eats and usually just on one side. I am trying to figure out if she is pregnant or not as her private area has never been swollen.

    Welcome to BYH from Florida,:frow
    My guess would be she is pregnant, I am having a hard time viewing the picture, but from what I can see she looks to have udder development and her sides seem to be rounded....
    My guess is you may have a kid within the next three weeks...if you have any questions, post them and you will get advice and answers.

    I'm not gonna hazard a guess as to "when" but I do believe she looks bred. Congrats - you're (probably) gonna be a goaty grampy!
