    Since yesterday, there is a brownish-black tumour like growth (the size of a blueberry) hanging out from my duck's butt (male) . At first, thinking it was poop, i tried to wash it off with water but realised that it's hard as stone and it won't come off. Is this harmful? Should I do something about it or should I just leave it?

    Are you sure it's not his Penis? Definitely not right.

    I've had this duck for over 4 years now and I don't think it's a penis as when I checked this morning that growth has became bigger

    That looks like a prolapsed penis. He will need to see a Vet I think.

    I believe it's his penis also. Is a vet an option? In the mean time let him soak in some warm water with Epsom salt added [don't let him drink the water] its a laxative.

    I'm thinking a Vet will have to remove the dead tissue surgically. I had to do it to my one Drake.

    One of mine had this done too, but it didn't get quite so infected as this one looks. Not to scare you, but it was about $400. I didn't shop around though and I live in a fairly expensive state.

    @casportpony has a thread about penis prolapse she can share once she is on.
