A question about Kashrut !

I would like to know why in the laws of kashrut it states that we are not to eat the Blood nor Fat of Any Animal. Why do we then eat chicken fat?

Guys i am concerned because friends of ours invite us over for dinner and they use chicken fat in their dishes. We are as close to being 100 % observant to the laws of kashrut as humanly possible, so this is why i am asking if anyone knows if we would be breaking a high law of kashrut by the eating of chicken fat.

The halacha isn't referring to all fat, but rather to a specific kind of fat called "chelev" which is usually removed by kosher butchers before it is sold.
