    I have a Buff duck and she about 7 and a half months old. She is laying eggs but...she has this worm looking thing hanging out of her. She is still laying eggs with this thing hanging out of her. She is eating normally, drinking water, swimming and quacking just normal. I have been looking for answers and it all says it could be a clasped egg but she is laying still? I am new to ducks so I am so lost. Should I take her to the vet? Help me please!!!!

    I honestly don't know. But I would imagine that those who do will see this soon. I might suggest a picture of the problem would increase your chances of a diagnosis too.

    [​IMG] I know this looks awful but this is what is going on with my duck. I have no idea what this is! It doesnt seem to hurt her either when I touch it and stuff. Please help!

    I'd get her to a vet asap I think.
    Regardless of whether it's a prolapsed vent or anus (or something else entirely); it needs looking at before it gets more complicated than it already is.

    Fingers crossed for a good outcome for her

    It's time to go to the vet. That is a serious problem that needs an expert opinion.
