The 50 degree temperature referred to are water temps
- not air temps.
Maybe your pond water is alot warmer? I think I'd start
slacking off on the food though. They'll soon catch on.

Yep ... Cold - too cold for feeding. I guess you'll
just have to ignore their pleas for food and maybe pet
them when they come up.
