    My ducks have just discovered my koi pond. Will it harm my fish. All of my koi are large

    I don't think that it would be an issue. Just make sure that the pond gets cleaned really well on a regular basis, since the ducks will poop in it.

    I would put a fence around the pond......Ducks will still bite at the fish, poop a lot and will having your nice koi pond area looking terrible in a few days......

    Silly Ducks...


    Cheers!

    Koi are curious so they'll probably investigate. That being said I've never had ducks bother my koi. Even a mama with babies did ok. They will muck up the water though.

    They did not harm my Koi BUT they did ruin many of my pricey plants, so i fenced it down later this year... they also stir up the pond something fierce.
