Tail flagging, pretty much constant screaming like she is dying, swollen vulva that is darker colored than usual, thin clear discharge, hanging out at the fence closest to the bucks, frequent urination, mounting or being mounted by other does, restless, could be off feed, bucky behavior including tongue flapping and strange noises, and the most telling sign of all - standing for the buck.

Drop in milk production if lactating
friendlier than normal or the opposite, more stand offish towards humans
dirty tail where the discharge has leaked out and stuck to the hair, which gets mixed with dirt or hay.

One of my does doesn't show any signs of being in heat besides standing near the buck fence, 'flagging' her tail, and a swollen vulva. So those are usually the signs I look for. :)

I agree with what everyone else said. :). Although I also have a doe who doesn't do anything but stare at the buck and whimper when she's in heat.
