I converted a 2 gal. bleach jug into a killing cone this weekend and it worked wonderfully! It also presented the chicken's neck at just the right juncture for a clean slice to remove the entire head. I'll never go back to the axe again, that's for sure. Found some very odd things in these chickens this time and I should have taken some pics....one was a huge and very gross egg impaction. The other was the biggest set of roo cojones I've ever witnessed! They were as big as golf balls!
