Are you asking if a normal female can turn red? if so, no.

No. Menopause would imply a regular hormonal cycle - although I don't recall reading anything about it.

I actually do wonder, now, if there would be an altered viability of the eggs from an older female - like in mammals... Anyone read anything on this?

50$ for a female rosie when you can get one for 10-20$ even at pet stores?
