can prolapse be caused by duck mating chicken?

I have a male pekin duck who has recently been mating one or two of our chcken hens (both are favorites of the roo's, also, out of our 6 girls).
(We've been trying to isolate him or break the behavior, but will put him down if we can't stop it).

One of the hens has been laying bloody eggs lately, and I'm afraid that it's because of the large duck. Can this lead to a torn or prolapsed cloaca?
We're not sure which girl it is, but want to take care of the problem before it gets bad.
Thanks for your thoughts...

If they're mating normally, no. If he's scratching her vent up with his feet, maybe. Birds do not have parts that go inside other parts for mating; they only have parts that touch.

Ive always been told ducks have a cork screw penis-now the funny thing is I never knew pigs did? I was always keeping an eye on my 1 male duck so he did not trap one of my girls into mating and hurting them...ALL this time I never knew he couldnt "hurt" them that way???
