Based on your criteria, I would go with Black Jersey Giants. The late rate of the two breeds is similar but the BJGs are a larger breed and usually a little more calm and gentle than Wyandottes (although both breeds are typically docile).

Your welcome. Getting both would work great, especially since the recommended ratio of roosters to hens is 1 rooster for every 10 hens. You could get 5 BJG hens and 5 Wyandotte hens. :o)
