Pekin and Cochins

I just looked in my chicken book to find out more. Cochins are a lot fluffier than Pekins. They are also taller and a lot bigger than the Pekins. Male cochins weigh about 11 lbs and females weigh about 8.5 lbs. Male Pekins weigh 24 oz. and females weigh 20 oz. Cochins have a round appearance and Pekins have a stocky and robust body. Hopefully that helps more than the first comment
In some countries bantam cochins are called pekins. In the US they are called bantam cochins. That is the only difference, although the exact standard and recognized varieties will vary by country.
