    I want to say female because she doesn't have a mask. You could vent sex or see if she lays an egg.

    I read somewhere that it is hard to tell male from female with this colour, as it has a white neck already, and not sure how to check the vent.

    there are youtube videos on vent sexing. But, I don't think it is old enough to do that with yet
