The female is indeed a dark silver hen.

The male seems to be a silver lightback grey. Silver you can see by the tail markings, they are not black-white, but (from top to bottom) black-greyish-white. Sometimes a silver grey male split cfw or lightback can be a little bit like a silver lightback, but in this cases you see still a bit of cream color in the feathers around the legs. All silver lightbacks (all lightbacks and CFW in general if they aren't blackface) have a totally white belly.
