German Blue Ram question

I have 4 rams, 2 male and 2 female for about 5 months now and got them from a great seller here. They look great and very active fish, but today I just noticed my 2 females are starting to get a red color on their stomach area. Is this something I should worry about or is it that they are starting to develop eggs?

Mature females naturally develop red bellies, it's one of things that sets them apart from males, that and size.

matt13 was the seller. I do highly recommend him. After doing some looking up online I did see that the red bellies are when they start hitting the mature state and can start laying eggs.
