If I was told by an allergist that I am allergic to chicken, would I be allergic to the entire chicken or certain parts?

In brief: It depends.
If you have an allergy to chicken, you can have an allergy to the whole chicken and products that contain chicken, like chicken soup, etc.
However, you might be only allergic to feathers, . If you have a bad allergy to something, you should get tested to see how bad it is, because it could be serious, and you should try to avoid anything that could have even traces of it.
