I have heard of this happening and it can be a very serious issue. Keep and eye on him, checking it daily. Good luck!
I've heard of this problem, sometimes the penis has to be removed surgically by a vet or it can dry up and shrivel, cause infection and so forth. Eeek, poor ducky. Tell him to keep it in his pants for a while, he's gonna wear it out
Ohh no. Ive never heard of this. I wouldnt even know what to think if I saw that lol

When my snake had a prolapse, I used KY jelly and a thermometer to re-insert it. Just thought I would share the technique. It worked well. I would let it swim in warm water, then dab the jelly around the area and gently push it back in.
I know this is quite an old post but I am having this issue with my Pekin drake. We tried to push his back in but were not successful as we are not exactly sure how to do so. Any tips? We are afraid to apply too much pressure & do more harm than good. His is still in good condition and is no where need the need for amputation, we are trying to prevent that.
