Can you eat penguin ...................?

If you were shipwrecked and just couldn't stomach the seal meat, but there were penguins, could you eat them? I know they have a lot of blubber so would this be possible?

    Penguins were eaten regularly by sealers and early Antarctic explorers. The penguins in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and South America were also eaten by the native peoples. The breast is the favoured part and is the most palatable. The legs, while muscly, have a strong fishy taste. Penguin eggs were also popular. An area of the penguin colony was marked and all eggs were removed and destroyed. The birds laid further eggs to replace the lost ones and these were then taken and eaten as they were known to be fresh. Eventually the birds would stop laying or they would be left alone with an egg or two to incubate.

    I don't see why not. its like eating any other animal. you would need to get the muscle because thats the part we normally eat of the animal. also you could eat the intestines.
