Game hens with bacon-chestnut stuffing

The chestnut bacon stuffing recipe is from Chestnut Farms. The contents are 1/2 pound crumbled bacon, 3 chopped celery stalks, 1 finely chopped onion, 2 1/4 finely chopped boiled chestnuts, 4 cups fresh breadcrumbs, juice and zest of 1 lemon, juice and zest of 1 orange, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon chopped sage, salt, and pepper. Fry the bacon until done. Add onion and celery, fry 5 more minutes. Combine with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.

We stuffed ours into four Cornish hens. We did not use the orange or lemon; it was VERY good.

    That looks so amazing! How long did it take to make? I have been told that turkeys can take as long as 4 hours. Is that true?
