I wonder if anyone can give me a guess as to his sex.

Looks female at this point. I suppose it's possible it's a bit early. When my redfoot was 3 1/2 years old he was 8 1/4 inches and very obviously male. Yours is still a bit smaller than that though.

I’m leaning towards too young because they look pretty small.
