    They are not Leghorns; my guess is that they are Cornish Cross.

    Post a pic, I'd say you got CornishX as well.

    Could you post some pictures? I agree with @sylviethecochin : they sound like Cornish Rocks.
    Are their ears white or red? How do they act? Are they active? Do they eat a lot more than normal chickens?
