Young runner male prolapse?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My drake is 14 weeks old and was jumping on everything that moves tonight, even the 12 week old goose. Anyway, a duck broke free and he was left with his penis out. Most retracted, but a bit was left out. One of the ducks grabbed it and yanked, then the rest all started. We tried to herd them away from him before they hurt him and it seems like everything went back to normal after a few minutes. Does that happen much, like a temporary prolapse? It was 5-10 minutes all together I think.

From what I've read, it does happen quite regularly.

Thanks! My husband was in hysterics laughing at him, but I was too worried knowing I had read that a prolapse can be serious.

I can see both points of view . . . yes, it can be very serious, and just that scenario happens - it pokes out a little, and everyone goes after the "worm."
