Question Quick suggestion needed

I put 4 whole chickens in the oven. In one aluminum tray, packed pretty tightly. 400 degrees. They are covered with foil, somewhat loosely.
How long do you think it will take to cook them?

They won't be cooking evenly if they are packed in against each other Charlie.

The sides that are touching each other won't cook as fast as the rest of the birds.

Gosh, can you transfer two of them to another pan and continue cooking?

Neah, it's an old, lousy stove. I just checked, after hour and a half. They are not nearly ready.

Hmm, if transferring to a 2nd pan was not an option, I wonder if it would have been possible to turn the birds around when you thought they were approximately half way done. That is , the sides which were inside and touching, would now become the outsides for a more even roasting. Did they otherwise come out ok tasting?

I end up turning chickens 4 times. It worked.

Charlie--totally off topic, I've been invited to dinner with Jewish friends next Friday. Would it be appropriate for me to bring a bottle of kosher wine? I would dare bring any food items. Or would a pot of blooming tulips be appropriate? I don't want to arrive empty handed. I'm sure the meal will be wonderful. Do I have to wear a headscarf out of respect? They are Orthodox.
