all chickens have that divet in their chest it is more pronounced on CX because they have such large breasts sometimes on regular hens you can feel it but their feathering is thick enough to cover it up unless it is a larger breed hen, the divet is where the breast attaches to the sternum/keel 

 

it is more than likely a leghorn cross or a badly bred leghorn. they must be fairly narrow and light weight and have pure white feathers

I realized my mistake a little bit too late - I was trying to remember the word for cornish cross, but for some reason broiler was the only word coming to mind!  Thanks for the information!  I didn't know that last part, about all chickens having divets, I never noticed it before!  Good to know  :)
