Ok these are all eyeball measures for the brine.
I put the hens in a half gallon container and almost covered them with water (probably 3-4 inches I was trying to leave some room for the next ingredients)
added 2/3 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of salt
2 tablespoons of dark molasses
3 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
The juice and the left overs of 3 limes
4-5 large cloves of garlic mashed
a generous grinding of pepper

I the added enough water just to cover.
put them in the fridge for 24 hrs

I then drained them and patted them dry stuffed half a lime and 3 cloves of garlic in each.

The potatoes are small red potatoes salt pepper onions quartered garlic chopped, some roasted bell pepper. I added a little stock from the necks to the dish and baked at 400 deg for about 80 minutes.
