    It appears his penis is stuck out. I've read this can happen and that it can render him infertile and it can even fall off. Is there any way to help him? Have any of you dealt with this issue before?

    It does happen sometimes. The drake either has to many hens or he was pulled off by another drake. Put some vasoline on it and try working it back in. Seperate him from the females for a few days so he can heal. If it doesn't stay in pm me and I will tell you what to do. Good luck

    My pekin drakes would always run into this problem.. One time one of the drakes did that and it stayed like that for like a week.. but he never went infertile..

    That happened to my dog one time. I took him to the vet and thats basically what he did just used some surgical lubricant.

    I think 4 females for a standard duck is fine. Just one of those things that happen.

    I just wanted to update that turbo's suggestion worked fine. (In case anyone else searches the forum for this problem.) I was also wondering if this is likely to be a continual problem with him now?

    And thank you all for the chuckles. I was sure suprised when I realized what it was that I was seeing. [​IMG]
