    In true exhibition stock? Massive differences in type; you could differentiate the two a mile away.

    In hatchery stock? Not many. Brahmas are a bit thinner. More lightly feathered legs. Pea comb in Brahmas and single in Cochins. The varieties Brahmas are usually seen in are rare in Cochins and vice versa. Laying ability, temperament, and size are similar.
