Agreed. The UK actually recognizes Cochins and Pekins as two separate breeds, but they are considered the same breed in the USA.

To me, a cochin by any other name is still a cochin  -  when someone says Pekin,  I think they are referring to ducks.

The name Pekin refers normally to bantam Cochin.

Fortunately the duck is spelled with a "g" on the end (Peking). :o)
