    Coccidiosis. Its a protozoa that reproduce in the lining of the intestinal tract resulting in bloody diarrhea. (bloody vent)

    I've never seen a duck have but have seen a lot of members on the board with chickens having it though.

    If you google - coccidiosis on google it will give you more information. Most likely the duck wont live since it's deadly. (But I could be wrong)

    looks like maybe one of the other ducks pecked at him after he got done mating. Sorry, i haven't had to deal with anything like this yet, hopefully someone who has will chime in here. Might take it to a good vet if you have one close by.

    I don't know if i would consider that something from cocci but if it is, amprolium would be your best bet to get rid of it and yes it is the safest thing to treat the duck with. But i'm not sure this is the case because it looks like his penis is stuck out and has been pecked at unless that is part of the cocci. I'm not sure, i have been wrong before [​IMG]

    Quote:I agree. Clean him up and you might be able to see what the problem is. It looks more like an injury then an illness. I hope he will be ok. Mild soap and water should do the trick until you can find out more.

    Thanks everyone I'm thinking the girl got a lil fresh with him afterwards! lol anyways been reading everywhere that letting them swim in some water for an hour or two will cause it to retract back in.. looks a little better now at least its not bloody anymore. Started to retract see how he is in the morning.
