Neelam is the first and only baby born at Preetirang Sanctuary. She’s the baby of Darjeeling (mixed breed hen) and Blue (Black Silkie Bantam rooster). Darjeeling wanted a baby so badly that she sat on her eggs without taking a break for food and water. She had to be fed and given water in her nesting coop. Baby, Neelam, is a miraculous combination of her parents. She has the color and the feet of a black silkie but her feathers, the shape of her head and a small tuft on the back of her head is just like her mother’s.
