    The photo is not much to go on. It is basld, so its at least six weeks old. Its not any bigger than the chickien, so its probably less than 10 weeks old. I would guess around 8 weeks. The larger feet and lack of a neck stripe suggest male, but hard to tell without more clues.

    I'm not entirely convinced that it's a Narragansett, either.
