How long does it take to defrost a whole chicken in a refrigerator?

I've seen estimates of 5 hours/pound for a whole chickdn; but I put a 7.2 lb chicken in the refrigerator almost 24 hours ago, and now it feels like it's just defrosted the outside.     

I measured the refrigerator to be 38F and the outside of the chicken to be 31.8.
