In the Brooder

Also, I think it's maybe 2-4 weeks old? Can anyone tell me a better age guess? Thank you so much!!!
It's about a week old. There are a lot of white feathered breeds/mixes. It doesn't look stout like a meat bird but maybe a white Rock. Time will tell.
Are you able to get some other chicks? A single would be horribly lonely.
Life finds a way, it's not as if the chick will die of loneliness. It's just not ideal.
Other ways to get just a couple chicks: there are threads in the social section here so you can find other chicken people in your area (some of whom have probably been hatching). I've gotten just a couple that way. Or, I've heard you can buy fewer than six at farm stores if you tell them you're buying them for snake food.
