    My BO is approaching POL. Her legs are pink this morning. Is this another sign she is close, or is it an irritation of some kind I may need to deal with? I'll try to get a pic.

    I'd say it's her hormones starting to kick in. I notice it in my roos a lot when they're maturing.

    That's normal. Nothing to worry about. [​IMG]

    It just means that she's getting ready to lay.
