Use the holes to connect/build a hook (1-1.5mm wire) in order to secure the unit over a bucket/tray.
For a small farm, a carousel can be build using the 4 and 6 cones support!

Sample was print using generic ABS filament. Design optimized for 0.4mm nozzle.
I test the cones, and are working great.
Before, I use to keep the birds in hand - during the bleeding process - this can become quite messy if do not take the time, not to mention ... can be depressing. Using the cone, protect the bird from hurting more than necessary and everything is keep clean!
Since the price for one cone - I found online - was very high - over 15 usd / unit (plastic model)... I design and print my own - 30 grams of filament and 5 printing hours!
The videos I found online - show that birds are already in to the cone - upside down - when the bleeding process starts; however, since quails are small, and I do not want to stress the birds by forcing them in to the cone, I use the bird behavior to ease up the process!
Insert the bird in to the cone, keep it with the head up - bird will try to keep the head out of the cone - use scissors - hang the cone in to a bucket.
I use 8 cones - and a large bleeding bucket. Since I normally process like 60 - 90 birds in a session, 8 -12 cones will suffice.
