@Zara can help you

but I am not 100% sure about age I don’t think you can tell only if they have a black beak and that’s just a guess they are a baby young bird

gender no way to tell 100% for sure unless you dna them there aren’t sexed by colour or any visual clues

behaviour can give you a guess but that’s not always 100% as some birds can have male/female behaviour

Your bird is not a "baby", but it is on the younger side. As for gender, your only possible ways of knowing are DNA/surgical testing, if she lays an egg, or if you know the mutations of both parents then there is a chance.

Yes. Unless there is some sort of illness affecting the pigmentation, it would be an immature bird.
