Farming guinea pigs for food

Is it legit? Guinea pigs provide you with up to a pound of meat and only take about twelve weeks from birth to reach slaughter weight. As rodents they have a better feed conversion ratio than other mammals, and almost as good as poultry. When the great reset takes meat off the shelves and all the farm animals die of mass influenza and mareck's epidemics, will buying guinea pigs and raising them in a compound for meat be the way of the future? They are so widdle and cute and easy to handle, they are happy in capivity and they like to have lots of sex (I do too, relatable), so is there really any problem?

    As usual, "the better the idea, the more shills speak against it" rule of Wauf seems to be in effect here, not a single voice of agreement.
    Sounds like a solid idea to me.

    I'd be tempted to start a small guinea pig meat farm myself.
    Is the meat fattier than rabbit though? Rabbit-meat starvation is a concern

    No, people will just raise chickens as that’s what the culture is familiar with and proven out to be better

    So then get poultry, you dumb frick. Fowl have been food in civilized countries since the dawn of time, only in weird mountain regions do they have to resort to eating colorful rats.
    What, are you scared of raising chickens? Are you seriously going to debase yourself to eating rodentia like a medieval Untouchable, out of fear? This is one of the most degenerate things I've read on this website.

    No.

    Guinea pigs by large are not for meat consumption. There is one breed which is almost exclusively held in Guinea which is reared for meat consumption and they are a lot larger in size, but the domestic pet market is not bred to that same standard. You also clearly do not have the IQ to jumpstart a meat farm of any kind anyway if you are dumb enough to humor the great reset conspiracy theroy as legimate course of concern to prep for with a fricking Guinea pig meat farm. For christ sake just get chickens like a normal person.

        If you keep your chicken population segregated from other flocks and control your feed sources Marek wont be a concern. If you dont want to touch poultry there is a shit ton more avenues you can go down before:

            Guinea pigs can catch human influenza and die lmao. Raising guinea pigs as food is a moronic idea.

            Then keep them away from wild birds moron. Private flocks free from Marek which also do not rely on vaccinations exist.

            Originally yes. But you take a look at a modern Guinea Pig and if you can say with a straight face that they are ideal for meat you are just being a dumbfrick. An English Bulldog was bred to bull bait originally, do you think the current lineages can still do that now? Of course not. Same with Guinea Pigs.

              But the guinea pigs are still being eaten. They eat millions of them in the Andes.

                They're not as domesticated, so more aggressive and resistant to being handled. Some of them are chill but those aren't common.
                If you want a big version of another small pet that's chill get a Flemish Giant rabbit.

                Those are a new breed, literally "bettered guinea pigs". The normal ones are eaten too, to be honest I have never seen ones as big as those in the pictures grilled.
                The normal ones fit on a plate.
                Idk why you insist on guinea pigs not being a breedable food source, even if the ones eaten were a special breed OP could just import those.

                Because it is a needlessly niche food source and is subject to as many problems as standard life stock and the latter's problem is avoidable anyway. OP just wants to be contrarian for the sake of it. He is not actually seriously considering to do anything with lifestock.

                Fair enough, but guinea pigs are still adequate livestock animals, since that's what they've been domesticated for.
                To be honest I bet if you grew them in the US you could sell them as exotic meat if you found an appropriate buyer.

                According to fricking who? It's a small rodent with the ecological niche of cattle. Arguably they will be extremely useful on Mars due to their small size, rapid breeding, and ability to turn grass into meat.

      Yes, abolutely. They are basically miniature pigs, as in feed them your trash organic matter and it will turn into proteine.

      Guinea pigs are from Peru, not Guinea, and they are eaten there

      Why are you talking so authoritatively about shit you have zero clue about?
      Are you genuinely moronic?
