    Sorry, I can't help with the breed but I'd think 7 months is a good bet. Maybe even a bit older.

    That's a grey. Look up American grey. With that being said only the breeder would know for sure. Grey is dominant so even if he is let's say 1/4 grey and 3/4 hatch or another breed he'll still look like a grey

    Color tints and stuff like leg color can differ by sub family
