    Oh really! I didn't read it properly then :oops: sorry!

    That's a rather odd device - probably just as easy to use the old broomstick method to break the neck in that case rather than the UK device...

    Most rural stores that sell chook & horse feed should also sell kill cones & possibly even the Morrigan thing as well.
    Well, they do here in my area anyway.

    G'day
    I watched this video and made my cones to suit killing Chickens & Quails. I went to the recycling depot and found some thick vinyl. I cut the vinyl with a sharp knife. Pop riveted it together. I nailed it to one and a half inch stake. I dug a hole and inserted a two inch PVC pipe. I knocked it to ground level so that I can mow over it. When I need it to kill my Chickens or Quail I take the stored cone out of the shed and place it into the PVC pipe. They have lasted me over 5 years.
    Watch this video.
    Cheers Perry

    That' a really good idea Perry. Thanks for sharing it.
    Another thing that makes a good cone is the good old orange roadwork cone.
    We used to call them chinaman's hats.
    They come in a few sizes & cost very little on ebay or from Bunnings.
    It will have to have the top hole (that ends up at the bottom when used for this purpose) cut bigger to fit the chicken head through but other than that, it screws to the post just like yours.
    Being plastic they are very easy to clean up after the job is done.
