I suppose it is all a mater of preference, as I stated in my post Even though I found my first attempt at skinning tricky, I will probably give it another try. I will try to follow the hog skinning video I found here I'll be sure to have a curved blade like X-acto #10 or X-acto #22 (a Google image search will give you examples) I even purchased a seam ripper, to test that out.
You have to do the most good for the most. You most remember that a few will won't make it. Don't be ashamed to shed a tear for the ones lost along the way, we will not hold it against you. Just remember "the herd goes on".

when I lived in Florida, I tried Guinea pigs for a while- the seasons were long, and grass and forage were almost always available-- I prefer the skin on, [skinning is also a lot of trouble compared to rabbits] I like them deep fried - or rubbed with salt and pepper, and baked- then at the last,- I uncover them and set the oven on broil , until they get brown and crispy - I like to dip meat pieces in butter and fresh chopped garlic..[no wonder i am so fat] .. I don't think raising them is too efficient in areas with long winters, as feed must be purchased -- unless,-- one had a greenhouse like I did in Florida..
meat-mutt rabbits, a few laying hens.
