Those colours should be displaying receptivity...if she is not bred with a male now she will probably go on to lay some infertile eggs in a month and a half-2 months...keep her warm and out of any stressful environment.

Do you plan on breeding her?

Chances are she has mated with the male a few times. You should have a laying bin already in her cage and feed her with a lot of calcium supplements. She should lay eggs in about 3-5 weeks.
And also make sure you have an incubator ready because the eggs will not survive in the room temperature during winter.
The eggs should be kept around 24 degrees celsius.
Good luck
