The Koi Whisperer was busy here this morning. She decided it was time for the 6 new young koi to be released into the huge outdoor pond. They haven't been sick at all since she brought them home so it should be safe to let them be with the other fishies. The other big task was assigning the names to them. First The Koi Whisperer tries to see if she can tell if the koi are male or female. It's very hard to tell with the koi so young. Then she tries to pick one of our pals names that seems to fit that fish. So here are the 6 youngin's:
Here is Maggie trying to jump out of the bucket! She wants in the big pond now!!
We still have some koi in the big pond that were born out there last year that we decided to keep. So we'll be assigning names to those when we can get good pictures of them. For some reason we don't have very many baby koi in the pond this year. We think those darn bullfrogs are gorging themselves on the babies. So we'll have to wait til next spring to see how many babies survive. They should be big enough by then to tell them apart & name them. So don't worry, if you signed up to have a koi named after you, we still have our list & keep it updated all of the time. Better go feed the fishies again, hehehehe.
