    I have no idea what breed either of them are, and I'm not entirely sure of the gender. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Looking at the links you supplied, it says that Campines have white earlobes, and Fayoumis red ones with a white spot. It shows in the pictures, too. [​IMG] You may have to wait until she's older, though.

    Oh yeah... Good catch! [​IMG] Now why didn't I notice that... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I could of sworn that Fayoumis have white earlobes... Learn something new every day! [​IMG]


    Desilvam - Can you remember what color she was as a chick? They are apparently colored very differently as chicks...
