    Welcome to BYC!
    I would get the New Hampshires before the Wyandottes as they will lay better.

    Like should I get I get both of them and then keep them seperated for purebreds. Which one would brood better?

    Not sure which would brood better as I've never had any broody hens from either of them.
    They both are very popular breeds and they are both good egg layers.
    Just one lays a little more than the other.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry but I don't have either breed. But @Wyandottes7 does have wyandottes and should be able to help. I'm sure they will be along soon to greet you.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
