    If you are able to post some pics, that would be great. Not sure if you can with the new regulations to avoid spam going on. I had a hen with a kidney infection and it made her vent area very infected. I was convinced she had vent gleet, which is like a yeasty infection of the vent area. Come to find out, she had a bad kidney infection, and her poo was so acidic, it was scalding her vent area. Have you looked him over carefully? Is it possible he got some sort of injury and this could be an abcess? Hopefully some others with some experience in this will chime in. Good luck!

    It could be infection or a prolapse which I don't think is unheard of in roosters. Can you give us a picture? He could have some infestation of some kind?
