I usually use the weight of the raw meat for base calculations and fudge 
some when bone is involved.  Whole birds of 2 to 3 pounds tend to be a table 
serving for me, smaller ones are apportioned to one to four people, larger 
ones serve multiple tables.  Under normal circumstances, I try to avoid 
whole birds completely.
