    I can't enlarge the pics but I agree it looks like a rosecomb brown leghorn and probably a hatchery Delaware.

    It's best to leave new birds locked in the coop for the first several days so they learn where home is. They're strong creatures of habit and once they get used to roosting and laying in a specific area, they'll pretty much stay with that.
