    My yearling FF has the whole vulva area swollen up. It's not real red or angry looking yet. Just swollen and a little pinkish. She's not due for another 4 - 5 weeks (pen bred). Is this normal? This is my first year with kidding and my other goat is a three year old second freshener, different breed. So I don't have much experience or other goats to compare to. And yes, I'm a nervous worry wart. :biggrin

    Normal for here, some of my does do this and some don't, it just depends on the doe.

    Yep, same here with FF. Older does generally just get loose.
