Brining Cornish Hens

It's just going to be hubby and I for T-day this year and I've been debating whether to go out or cook in, am thinking of roasting a couple cornish hens - has anyone brined them? I'm assuming I could do it for 3 hours or so then roast as usual - had good success with a chicken last week. The other option is to run by a natural food store and pick up a fresh roasting chicken or capon - so if anyone has brined either the cornish hens or capon I would appreciate your comments

Happy Thanksgiving all!

I have not, but I would assume your plan of brining for 3 hours and then roasting should work great. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!
