    Post a couple pics of them is probably your best bet.

    To me, Buff Orps can be a bit harder than some other breeds. At 8 weeks, you should get a pretty good idea though. As mentioned, posting pictures is probably your best bet. A good head shot and a side shot of the body showing the legs makes it a lot easier.
