How Many Calories Are in a Whole Chicken?

Have you ever wondered how many calories are in a whole chicken? The average three pound bird has 2600 calories. Now that's the bad news; but where there's bad news, there is also good news.

If you remove the skin and the fat from the bird, leaving only the meat, that 2600 calorie bird will now only have 800 calories.
