Maybe they are Silkie mixed with Austrolorp or some other black breed, or maybe the Silkie parent had black feathers. Mixed breeds can be pretty tricky to figure out. I think I read that the Silkie feather texture is not passed to the first mix generation. But the crest and the black skin can be passed to the first mix generation.
