    My 8 week old Polish has blushing legs. It's legs are normal color for the most part, and here and there, at least once a day, it's legs and toenails turn a rusty red. Anyone seen this before?

    Mahonri, I always look forward to reading your posts.
    Anyway, today I see my polish is growing spike in his crest, so I'm thinking it's a male thing. Now he needs a home. [​IMG]

    Yup, blushing legs is a male hormonal thing. They tend to get brighter as they reach maturity (especially on light colored legs).
