White wing tips on Black Jersey Giant?

We have about a dozen black jersey giants in our flock. All of the hens are completely black - except for one! She has a white wing tips. Why would this one be different from the others? If it's going to stay that way, I thought I would name it Cruella. My husband said that was a bad name for a hen, though. He's probably right 😁
How old is she? Many black breeds grow in their first feathers with white wing tips, but they will molt out in later generations. It's pretty normal. She will be black when she grows up.
