    These two little guys were abandoned here last month(ish). Originally there were 3 but one disappeared, so we assume some sort of predator got it. The silver seems to be "dominant" over the brown/orange one. I tossed them some bread and the orange waited for the silver to move off to another area before s/he went up to the food.

    the "silver" is some sort of chinchilla breed. Maybe a Standard chin.

    the orange is definitely a MUTT. looks to have some wool breed, and looks like a giant Lion Head.

    Catch them and check their genitals. only real way. Do they have dewlaps? If they have dewlaps, they're probably does.
    If they don't they could be either.

    The orange guy looks like a real life Big Wig from Watership Down.

    Was thinking Chinchilla for the silver, but I'm not familiar at all with the breed. Thinking angora mix or lionhead mix for the orange guy. The ears look lionhead-ish rather than angora to me though.
