    Do I detect a True Lies fan in our midst. :eek:) Doris and Boris are both mixed breeds.

    well .. it was a good scene in the movie --- was going to go Boris and Natasha like rocky and bullwinkle


    i figured mixed breed for Boris ... was not so sure about Doris
    Best i can figure for Boris is a domnique/barred rock crossed with a RIR .... but the comb is off

    haven't the slightest idea about Doris -- she lays medium sized cream colored eggs and has dark dark green/black legs

    The hen is likely an Austra White- cross of white leghorn with australorp.

    The roo probably is Wyandotte crossed with something that is barred. Could be barred rock or black sex link rooster.

    if you are confused by his comb not looking like most wyandotte combs(low, smooth), rose comb with a lot of bumpiness is a common result of cross or mixing with single combed breeds.
