Bullying Koi

I am new in fish and pond business and I have a goldfish bigger than the one Koi I have in my pond. Every time after he eats, he keeps bumping into my Koi. I thought he was being a bully but maybe he's just in love. I have one small butterfly Koi, 1 large (bully), 1 med and 1 small goldfish in the pond. What do you think the survival rate would be for the babies and should I feed the big goldfish more so he doesn't eat them? -Kim

If you have plenty of hiding places, the survival rate of the baby fish is decent. More often than not, hobbyists end up with a pond full of baby fish. I would keep on feeding him the same amount of food.
