    Just like chicken.

    Silkies are suppose to have black meat, I have not butchered a silkie yet.

    If his skin is also black (silkie or silkie cross), the meat will be anywhere from black to a greenish color almost, or even pretty normal looking. However, a chicken can have black feathers and black feet and still have yellow or white skin and therefore normal-colored meat.
