    what, if any, are the differences?... I have been reading up on bantam breeds and this has gotten me a little puzzled... it seems that about half of what I have read states that they are just two names for the same breed, while the other half claims that they are two distinct breeds, the Pekin being a true bantam, and the banty Cochin being a bantamized standard breed... which story is right?...
