Do Guinea pigs go in the boil, or do you have to MASH them first?

If you keep 'em alive, won't they create lots of "pellets" you can use?

You know those pigs will multiply quickly...that's if you have a male. If you have two males you'll have to separate them.

OK, here's the best part. We posted a Q on a Guinea Pig forum about what to do and are getting fussed at for buying our Pig at a pet store and for not being aware of proper care. I wanted to tell them I made a yeast starter and read How to Brew, but I didn't think they'd get it.  :P

Where else do you buy Guinea Pigs?  I understand that there are plenty of cats and dogs that need to be adopted from shelters, but I doubt too many people see a Guinea Pig walking down the street and drop it off at the local animal control...
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!
Thanks

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Things you would eat if you didnt know what they were..................

My BIL was eating squid once with us because he thought they were spicy onion rings

He stopped eating when I dipped the head and tentacles in the sauce...........


I bet Guinea pigs taste justs like chicken thighs

Feed them LOTS of hops! ;D

Man, they really are pretty cute little piggies. 
Do they have good personalities?

In the Huancayo region, the cuy is preferred fried with a sauce of pepper and achiote. In Arequipa, it is prepared baked as cuy chaktado and in Cuzco, it is baked whole, as a small suckiling pig, with a hot pepper in its mouth.

I have to admit that sounds rather delicious!  I've always maintained that the delicious "cho cho beef" at a local Chinese place were more likely marinated deboned squirrel filets on skewers.  At least now I know something to try aside from ceviche and pisco should I ever get down Peru-way!

Yeah, they are pretty darn cute. They run around following mama oiking constantly (guinea pigs do oink!) I am going to take some pics with my son holding them tonight. They are too small to eat ... mama on the other hand.  ::)
