    Maybe I got some sort of mixed breed? We got our white leghorns from a tractor supply store. So what could they be if they're not white leghorns?

    Probably a white rock, or a tetra tint, but my money is on the white rock, tetra tints are slimmer like leghorns, and yours look rounder.

    I agree with Sunshine0235. It's a White Rock hen.

    Looks like a White Rock hen to me. One main difference (other than the color eggs they lay) between the two breeds is that Rocks have red earlobes and leghorns have white earlobes.
