I speak only from my own experience here when I say that a black poodle can turn the most lovely silver color one can imagine.

The way I can tell if a puppy will turn from black to silver is by looking at the hairs between the pads of his feet. If they are white, then you will most likely have a silver adult. The coloring change can take from one to three years. This also holds true with labradoodles and poodles.

In a yorkie, I can tell earlier if I will have a silver or blue baby by peeling back the fur to the skin. At 3 months or even sooner in some cases, the rootbase already starts changing to the adult color.

To get a blue dog, the dog must carry the dilute gene and be bred to another dog that is also a carrier of the dilute gene. This is can be seen in several breeds like dachshunds, aussies, australian cattle dogs and more. I have never personally seen a blue Doodle on any of these posts or elsewhwere, but that doesn't mean that they don't exist.
