We have a retail center in the Longview, Texas (Stoney Creek- Koi and Water Garden Supply) and have used Ayers family Koi for several years and I have to say we have used many different Koi farms in the past. With AFKF we have never gotten a koi we could not sale or were not proud to have recieved. Mark is very old school when it comes to his Breeding program. He only keeps the upper 5% to sale the rest are culled away. I truely beleive that he is the best breeder in the U.S.A. from what i have seen in person as well as on the web.
P.S. When you place an order with Mark you consistantly receive his best, not like a lot of other koi breeders where they send you a few good boxes and then you recieve inferior stock. I give you my word. Kevin Myers
