Has anyone ever had their male duck get his weener "stuck" in the out position. I mean it is stuck! It won't go back in. I brought him inside and put him in my tub with warm water... Is there anything else I can do for him? I am afraid that if I leave him out with the other ducks and they see it they will try to eat it...  What do I do?

I think you did the right thing.  I know there are some people who are here that know what to do.   I'm sure they'll be along shortly.  I think it's called Prolapsed Penis?

Just went and checked on Donald. He is still prolapsed.. I tried to gently push it back in and it came right back out... Now this is reallt starting to get frustrating. If I can't get it back in then I will have to keep him inside the house or in a cage in the coop. I don't trust letting him out with the other birds.

I just put some neosporine on him and tried to push it gently back in. Not sure if it worked yet but I am planning on keeping him away from any hens for a little while so his body can heal. I don't know if that was the right thing to do or not but I figured it was worth a shot. please if anyone has any better ideas, let me know..  Thanks

It's actually called Penis Paralysis, or Phallus prostration. Here is a paragraph from Barnyard in your Backyard (a book) about it: 

 

"Penis paralysis is a sad result of domestication of waterfowl. Under natural conditions, ducks and geese breed at maturity and have a short breeding season. At other times of the year, they are busy with more important things, such as migrating and finding enough to eat. Domesticated waterfowl, on the other hand, are required to do little to sustain themselves. They start breeding at a younger age, the males are often expected to breed more females than they would under natural conditions, and they breed for a longer period. As a result, sometimes a drake or gander overexerts his male organ to the point that he can't put it away anymore. It bounces around behind him in the dirt and mud, while the drake or gander wags his tail, hoping to get it to go back in. Eventually it becomes dirty and scabby, dries out, and perhaps gets infected, and the drake or gander may lose weight or die. This conditions may be a genetically inherited weakness of the muscles, possibly aggravated by some dietary deficiency. Usually, by the time the condition is noticed, nothing can be done but to put the drake or gander out of his misery."

 

I'm so sorry....:(

Yikes!! Ok well I already planned on keeping him away from any of my hens. Now I defonitly will. I feel so bad for the little guy sad.png. I guess I will have to go get some preperationH cream and see if it helps. Thanks for all of your advice.

Hopefully keeping it moisturized and away from the girls will bring down the swelling and it will go back in. fl.gif  Keep us updated on how he is please.
