How long to defrost a chicken?

Ok, I'm feeling all virtuous as I visited our (not so) local farm and bought some meat which is all traditionally reared. But it is all frozen and now I'm feeling a bit ashamed that I have no idea what to do with it.

I can cope with the mince, chops, etc. But how long (and how) do I defrost a whole chicken? I'm not sure how much it weighs (I'm not at home at the moment and it wasn't written on it) but it was £10 and would be classed as large in a regular supermarket.

Thanks blush

Id say 24hours in the fridge

Thank you both. Cook defrosted! That seems like something you are always told not to do...
