    I have both.
    Std cochin pros: Awsome size, gentle temperment ( roo lets dd 6 carry him), lay in winter, can be shown
    Std cochin cons: take FOREVER to mature ( 11 months and counting ), hard to keep foot feathers nice, combs can get frostbite

    EE pros : lay sooner, colored eggs, not frostbite, come in cool colors, good temperment ( if handled well) cute cheek poofs
    EE cons: can't be shown

    i hope this helps
