Talking Pressure cooker question

This is all new to me. Just purchased a pressure cooker and my question is if the recipe calls let's say to cook two hens for 7 minutes and you just want to cook one. Do you cut the time in half?. I guess that would be the same for any recipe that you cut in half. Do you cut the time in half.

The difference between one and two hens in a PC, is the amount of time it would take the PC to get up to temp and pressure. Once that happens, the cooking time is the same for one or two.

thank you. So that also applies to if you are cutting any recipe in half?
