    Howdy, y'all! I'm new to muscovies, so I need some help finding out what this is, please. My 7 1/2 month old drake had a bloody string hanging out of his butt this morning. Sorry for the bad picture It does not look like a foreign object. Is this normal duck parts or should I be concerned. He is not acting distressed in any way. Behavior is totally normal. Thanks![​IMG]

    You say had does that mean he has passed it? doesn't look like his penis but really hard to say, I'd catch him bring him in and put his into a warm bath so he can clean up and you can get a better look.

    Well, I just went out to check on him and his butt is now totally normal. Also while I was watching he let go a gigantic poop. Seems to be fine. I have no idea what that was. I will check on him periodically. Thanks!
