Your Dominique hen will give you black sex links. Any chick with a white head spot will be male. Problem is you won't be able to tell the female bsl chicks from the other hens chicks. The bsl females will mature pretty much black. The buff hens chicks will likely mature a buff/black mix. The Ee are wild cards as far as color genetics, but the extended black from the Aussie father will carry over quite a bit.
