    Is it RF? The "butt part" looks female but could we see the whole plastron? I'm still learning here

    In my experience (very limited) this red foot is too young to be sexed, my male shows his signs at 800g

    It's not unusual for a Redfoot to show as female when young.
    That being said. I also say female.
