Two chicken roast - how long?

If I have two birds, each of which I'd roast for 2 hours, how long do I roast them for when they're in the oven side by side? And what if I stuff them?

Turkey's off the menu with the esteemed guests so we're trying this instead. Please help if you can.

Shove some citrus fruits and grapes up their arses not stuffing - do that separately - pep 'em up by rubbing herby butter under the skin and over.

Cook them nestled lovingly side by side for about 2hrs 20 - pierce em a couple of times in the leg to make sure the juices are running clear - that should just about do it!!

thanks - so rather than doubling the time, it's an extra 20 minutes or so and a bit more "clear juices" checking than normal then...

can do Osso bucco a la Milanese, but am useless when it comes to the traditional roast - too much to get right all at the same time

Sorry - had to do some work ( even tho' it's my own business !!) and then DH brought DD down to spring me for the afternoon!!

Anyway - hope the birds (feathered and otherwise) turned up trumps for you !!

Birds were perfect, thanks - moist but properly cooked. Only let down was broccoli was slightly too well cooked, but with 4 veg, goose fat roasties, 2 types of meat, stuffing, gravy and cheese sauce, not to mention starters and pud, I'll let that go. Who says we can't multi-task
