Baby Koi in pond, isn't it too early (cold outside)
I live in Michigan, and while it is slowly warming up, the average temp is only 40-50 degrees. It was like 20 deg. this morning. So I was surprised to find one baby koi in my pond today. I haven't started feeding my adult koi yet since the water is still so cold; I usually don't start feeding them until at least the end of April/beginning of May when it warms up here. Does the baby need to be fed?
Is it normal to have baby koi in March? I thought June was the month for that to happen. It is about 2 1/2" long, will the adult koi eat it? I've only had my pond for 3 years, so I've never had any babies before, and honestly didn't think I would, since they eat the eggs.
Thanks for your help, I have never posted here before, I am usually on the mosaic boards.
