People feed ducks. The koi have learned that where ducks are, bread crumbs will follow. They're waiting for snacks. :]

They also might just be bored. Fish can be quite curious and you combine that with the instinct to form schools, maybe this is the result.


Zanki

If I put my hand in my fish tank I have a loach, my betta, a danio and a school of rasbora following my hand everywhere. Some end up seeing if I'm food, my betta and loach will happily swim around my hand and sit in it.


RedVamp2020

I have two Betta, I’ve always been scared of them possibly biting me. I’m not exactly fond of fish, but I try to make sure I take care of them to the best of my ability so my kids can see what a responsible pet owner is like… what’s it like to have them sit in your hand??


Zanki

If they bite they don't hurt. It feels like they bumped into you pretty much. My girls just like to relax in my hand. Doesn't really feel like anything as they're so small. My loach gives me a shock when they test to see if I'm food, but they're pretty big, bigger then my betta at any rate. They're good at the fast sneak attack.


RedVamp2020

Lol! I’ve definitely been learning a lot. Snails freak me out worse than the fish, but I have three now. My first one disappeared, but now that it has a friend in my 13 gallon, it’s reappeared and they both seem super happy. (All three are Nerites.)


Zanki

I love my snails! Tank snails are so awesome. I have two rabbits and an infestation of trumpet snails. Have you checked out shrimp yet? I have three types in my tank.


RedVamp2020

Not yet, I haven’t gotten that far into my fish hobby… I like the aesthetic of tanks, so I may go down that route, but for now, I’m keeping it small. My one Nerite has a white line along part of its shell, so I’m about to research the heck out of foods for snails (thank you, ADHD hyper focus.)


Zanki

Just add some calcium to the water. I added a cuttlefish bone to my tank for my snails shells.


cassafrass024

Betta are like little fishy puppy dogs. Coolest little fish that love to interact. Your comment just shows me that it's not just the fish I interact with.


Zanki

A lot of fish are curious. Only Sammy and Plecosaurus are scared of me. Sam is ok if I'm outside of outside of tank but he doesn't like me in his home. Plecosaurus is the biggest fish in the tank and a total coward. I've had him for eight years I think and he's still as skittish as the day I bought him.


rabid_shrimp

My females bettas bite my all the time haha. You can’t even feel it. When they lie on you, they are so light that you really can’t feel it.


SashKhe

This is the most wholesome comment I've seen on Reddit all day. Good on you, man! It's a wonderful thing for your kids to see you try and face your fears!


RedVamp2020

Thank you! In my mind, perfection is constantly trying to improve yourself and learn from your mistakes. If I can help others on the way, it’s even better. I’ve been hurt by so many people who don’t care, so I try to make sure I don’t turn into a hateful person.


SashKhe

Oh hey, that's my philosophy too! Best of luck on your journey, friend!

You, as well!

I suspect that only ~20 fish even know the duck is there. The rest are just following the other fish.

Salt-Pile

[Fish aren't nearly as dumb as most people like to think](https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10071-014-0761-0). Even a goldfish has at least a [five-month memory](https://www.abc.net.au/news/2008-02-19/goldfish-three-second-memory-myth-busted/1046710) not the 3 seconds of the old wives' tale. Some species of fish have displayed some fairly complex cognition.


GammaGoose85

Imagine walking down the street and unknowingly being followed by 127 people because they all know your going to McDonalds


here4pewdiepie

But the McDonalds instead give food for free and the people who are following are new to the town so they don't know where the McDonalds is

Jegator2

Yeah, wanted to feed right stuff but had the biggest mess in my truck bed as I bought cracked corn feed n left Big bag in pickup bed. It got rained on n bout 2 wks later unusable moldy yech.Could only get large feed bag.


SashKhe

It's not necessarily bad for them - sure it's "empty" calories, but during winter those calories may mean the world to a duck. Feed bread to ducks responsibly, instead!


MonoDilemma

I thought they were gonna eat the duck


Powell_614

And duck poo snacks


Lylle200

I thought they are eating the duck's piss and shit, thx for your information

I do wonder what koi eat other than people’s handouts lol. Bread crumbs are also not good for Duck’s digestion too btw

lucky_breaker

I know that's said in jest, but it gives me a chance to explain how I know about this behavior: I worked for a company whose campus had a giant koi pond built in the middle of it. A lot of people worked there, and even though you shouldn't feed bread and other human foods to wildlife, we all did, and those koi got *big*. Whenever we would walk over the wooden bridges built over parts of the pond to go back and forth from the buildings, they would all swarm underneath waiting for us to drop morsels from our lunches. As in, they heard humans walking on the wooden planks and their Pavlovian response was to book it to the bridge all at once and just thrash and pop their mouths open, waiting for food. Anytime any ducks or geese would take a swim, waiting for us to feed them too, the koi would start gathering behind them like sharks. When any food was tossed in, the birds would usually lose out to the koi because koi are apparently aggressive af about their carbs, and the birds got too annoyed with them to stick around. The point being, koi are surprisingly intelligent. And carb fiends.


scavengecoregalore

>koi are apparently aggressive af about their carbs This is the best thing I've read today xD TIL I'm really a koi

Don’t eat your friends!


farleymfmarley

Fish do feel pain I think but the actual argument was more so they just didn’t have pain receptors or something like that, Dumbasses named Bobby-joe that destroys every fishing hole he touches with his dip spit and lawn chairs say that because they justify their shitty fishing practices


Hobgoblin-_-

Ducks/geese/swans also dabble feed, meaning they take a mouthful of food and then sort of chew it fast with their bill in the water, which causes a decent amount of food to be ejected in nice little bite size pieces. Plenty of stray snacks for the following fishies :)


OoohItsAMystery

They probably figured out the duck gets fed by people. And so, if they follow the duck they have an easy food source.


geraldine_ferrari

Do ducks poop on land or in the water?


_Shengo_

I had one sitting down on land for a while, thought it was laying a egg so i went there, got the duck to walk away and grabbed right into duckpoop when i was 6. Dont know about the water part though.

They definitely poop in water. My poor pool knows this for a fact unfortunately. 🤮


searchingformytruth

So *that's* what pool covers are for!


esoteric_enigma

I think I heard somewhere that birds don't have bootyhole muscles, so they can't really hold it and choose when to poop like we do. When it's ready, it just flies out.


mrow-mrow

Yes, it’s just an auto pressure thing that they can’t control.


dazkhaz

They poop wherever they damn well please


Pulsecode9

Birds don't discriminate much. They go when they've got to go, and that's about that.


kakiyau

I saw one pooped and it was on land :)


greaterthanvmax

Yes.

Gorilla_Krispies

The one right behind him saw a poo and thought it was food, the rest are just following the fish in front of them. There’s a political metaphor in here somewhere


pixie-of-the-shire

According to Google -carp love eating bread, so they follow the duck around because they've been conditioned that duck = easy food.

No, first fish follows the duck. Other fish follow the fish in front of them. The question of course is why dies that first one do it, but hey, I guess there’s a reason.
