    Ok do some visualizing with me. My BEARDED EE roo has this super red area around the corners of his mouth (circled area is all red) on both sides. They're not wattles. I could not get good pics because he's sleeping lol

    I don't really see anything, but then, my sight is not the greatest. Sometimes, areas besides the comb will turn a bit red at sexual maturity -- point of lay, or ready to crow and mate. Perhaps this is what this is???
