    Are these numbers correct?

    According to fitday, a chicken leg weighing 200 grams (raw and with bone in) roasted and eaten with skin on would have the following:

    460 calories
    26.7 g fat
    51.5.g protein
    0 carb

    Is that right?

    It seemed high to me until I calculated that 200 grams is 7 ounces, not quite half a pound.

    That's right. We calculate by grams in Europe. I think the weight is pretty average for a whole chicken leg here.

    Your results seem a little high. I usually use this site for a quick look up: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/...products/714/2 It's close to your results, just a little lower....they calculate by 100 g (with a convenient drop down to choose whichever measurements you prefer)

    So annoying and confusing, the fact that you get different sites and books with different figures! Thanks kennelmom, I'll have a look at the site.

    Perhaps it's the entire leg with thigh attached, not just the drumstick itself.
