They are meat birds, as people have told you.

Well, you didn't intentionally buy broilers.. but mix ups at hatcheries and feed stores happen all the time.. Signs get mislabeled.

If just the legs are chunky.. and bodies are normal chick size.. they could be cockerel legs. Or they could be completely normal and you're just not used to them.. photo required to give more accurate answer. :caf
