    Any thoughts on mixing white chinese geese with my white embdens? Will the offspring be "mules"? I have had several people suggest this to me but what would be the benefits?

    If by "mules" you mean not fertile, then that would be incorrect. They'll definitely be cross breeds and will be able to produce offspring. As far as the benefits, it really depends on what your goal is. If you plan to sell them, make sure you let the buyers know that they're chinese-embden crosses.
