Twilight would’ve possibly been frozen in stone there, with no one the wiser, for days. After everypony realized she was gone, searched the village and asked around, Fluttershy would’ve realized that she’d heard Twilight mention the Everfree forest. So they’d find her there, but by then, the Cockatrice would possibly has left the area. Then they have to find every cockatrice nearby and have Fluttershy interrogate them all until she found the one who froze Twilight.
It’s not a very dramatic difference but fun to ponder.
