    I noticed lately that Machintosh, my Silver Appleyard X, Drake has be kind of slow coming in at night. Tonight he was quite far behind and I noticed something hanging and dragging underneath him.
    for lack of a better discription, It look like a big brown poop hanging from him about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long. I picked him up and turned him over and it looked really dry so i squeezed it. It felt and looked like i could crumble it but was nervous because I could see something yellow in the middle so I stopped and came in to browse the web.
    I assumed he would need me to soak his bottom as not to hurt him but after looking around I am thinking the yellow in the middle may be his penis.
    Please advise!!! I just added 3 pictures
    1st is direct view while he is on his back (very Cooperative duck)
    2nd is me holding it straight up
    3rd is the back of it.
    *******************
    4th picture After 45 minutes in tub I got this big black piece off
    5th picture is how it looked after an additional 30 minutes in the
    tub
    Tonight it looked less swollen and I am wondering if he is constipated like his but cant close.. I have also been applying antibiotic ointment after baths. I didn't take a picture tonight tho. I am working 2 jobs today.
    Tomorrow plan is another long soak and some preparation H. Not sure if whats is still there is hard yellowish poop or more likely he is so swollen now I am guessing his insides may be outside I am hoping tomorrow is better.

    Hmmmm...:(.... does not sound good..:(...If his Penis has been out a long time it will get infected..:(
    A warm bath might help but the description you gave does not sound promising...:(...

    Only a Vet can determine his case..:(...

    Best wishes..

    Cheers!

    I just added pictures . It looks pretty awful. I have him soaking at the moment but the black stuff is pretty firm and dry. I am wondering now if he is even able to poop like this....

    It looks like his penis yes. Must have been stuck out for a while.
    I would definatly get him to a vet.
    When stuck out that long sometimes it will dry up and die , and the vet can cut off the dead part.
    Soaking will probably help give some releif tho and get it cleaned off better so the vet can see whats going on better.

    Update on Macintosh He is all better and back out with the gang. It took about 6 weeks but worth the time and patience.
