    Dispatcher sounds like a general term. Are you looking for a killing cone?

    Why pay for something like that? Seems like something that could be easily accomplished without a specific tool getting the same result. Use a pair of scissors, shears, hatchet... anything.

    Absolutely, use sharp kitchen shears or any other sharp scissors on a chick. It's like using a mini-hatchett.

    I have a savannah moniter and if I was to feed it chicks this would do a good jop, for my rats I use a butter knife behind the neck and pull the tail it does the same job.

    Quote:To clarify for the other responders, i think that the o.p. is looking for poultry dispatcher for dispatching grown chickens - not for baby chicks. Is that correct, prancie?

    But still, i have not seen such an item before. Though it looks handy, i think you might find some garden shears more easily here in the states. Many dispatch by cutting the artery with a sharp knife and allowing the chicken to bleed out.

    No, it is definitely chicks. Here is a quote from the linked site...

    "Small hand-held Humane Dispatcher suitable for chicks, ducklings and very small birds from Mardle. "
