Squirrel interaction

A melanistic eastern gray squirrel has a nest with 2 young. She may have been hit on the road 3 days ago. When I looked at the nest tree yesterday, I was stunned to see a red squirrel hanging upside down and touching the nose of one of the black squirrels. No fight, no sound. The 2 scampered up the tree and the red went into the hole, to be joined by the others. Then I realized there was a young red as well. Is she rearing all 3? Is this interaction even possible?
