Mosquito fish arrive

Today we received the shipment of 200 mosquito fish for our ponds.  These Hardy  little fish serve two purposes: eating mosquito larva and producing the best duck eggs ever!

That's right,  ducks eat small fish,  and that makes their eggs absolutely dense  and rich. No grain can come close to the nutritional benefits of true seafood!  In fact bird food worth feeding has fish meal of some sort added.  Why not just use fresh fish?

We planted the fish in both ponds and mafraid sure enough rocks were at the bottom to provide protection(survival of the fittest ) then dumped the little guys in to do their job of filling the pond.

Hopefully they can reproduce faster than the ducks can eat them!
