Kids love animals and birds. They like to grow them as their pet. The only pet in our house is koi. So Antony and I thought we will buy at least a koi for each kid. They get to name them and grow them.
Once when we were attending Pan Intercorp live koi auction at Kenmore, Washington, our kids participated in that with our permission. Our oldest son Nikhil bought his first koi for 10 cents. It was a koi that was one and a half inch. We brought them over and trained Nikhil to take care of his koi. Nikhil was happy to have his own koi in the pond. During the summer he would make sure to feed the koi and change the water. He was really excited so much that he wanted to feed the koi every few hours. During the winter Nikhil was so worried that his fish might get cold and get sick.
