Young Koi Spawning

Koi Fish
I have several Koi that are about 6 inches in length. I did a lot of reading before getting them and read that they do not spawn until they are about 2 years old. This morning when I went out to feed them, they were spawning. Is it possible for them to lay eggs as small as they are? One of the larger ones( about 12 inches) was spawning also. They were all chasing one of the 6 inch white ones that I have. -Phancey Phish

It is quite possible that your 6 inch Koi are older than 2 years. They could be the elusive Chiisaigoi or "bonsai Koi".
