    Anytime mike... several folks have done this.. Marvin has some in south america very interesting looking birds.. I would be concerned with teh slower growth of the big cochin, but the cross could give you some very good heat tolerant broody's.
    If I were going to do something like that I would a NN / wyandotte for the Cochin x, or a NN Brahma. that would keep feather quality and body mass.
