    How old? Judging from those legs, it is possible that is a rooster! The comb and wattles are small however.

    I'm going with pullet on the unknown. Also the one white feather - many solid black birds have that one white feather or a white tipped feather on their wings at first. They have a small molt at 3-4 months and it will fall out and a solid black one takes it's place.
