    Not sure why no one has answered but they sure look black and they look like silkies so I think you're good.[​IMG]

    They look like mine and mine are all purebred silkies. I have white, black and blonde (?). I think you're good. Don't ask me about sexing though because I'm still working on that with mine [​IMG]
