    My silkie hen, Grape, was the only black chicken I had, until I hatched some black copper marans chicks, and she decided she was one of them! The mum, who is a pekin, is smaller than her, but she accepted it. Grape sleeps with them and is even almost cheeping like them, and now the mum has moved back on the perch with the others, Grape is still sleeping with the chicks!
