    I'm a noob when it comes to chicken types and breeds, but what is considered a Cochin and is an buff Orpington that same thing? If not what is the difference between them?

    BO is a decent sized yellow chicken that lays decent sized egg. Cochin is a smaller breed and looks completely different. It also has feathered feet. You can look them up on here.

    Buff Orpingtons are buff colored, single combed with clean white legs. Buff Cochins are buff colored, single combed with feathered yellow legs. Both lay brown eggs.

    While there are bantam Orpingtons, large fowl are more common. Cochins are common in both bantam and large fowl.
