There have been a couple of times that we have tried to keep fish here at the farm. When we first got our ducks, I wanted fish so bad that my daughter and I went shopping for some fish.
We went to several stores looking for the right fish. Finally, we thought we may found the perfect fishes. We purchased all the accouterments that go along with buying fish, and we hoped in our hearts that they would all be happy in their new home.
The ducks ate all the fish in a few days after the purchase. UGH! Alright, lesson learned the fish were like yummy succulent appetizers for the ducks. They were proudly telling everyone on the farm about what they had as they were quacking merrily about the pond. It was a little embarrassing.
Last year, we thought we would try again. The goats needed some fish to help keep their drinking water clean by eating the mosquitos. Apparently, we did not have enough mosquitos, because by the fall they were dead. They did last longer than the other fish. I will have to keep trying. Even the mission has fishes in their fountain.
