It is better if you mix them up but we have out about 400 and are going to set out 200 more and most of them are just snows. All except about 50 that are blues and canadian rags. They will still come in with just white but it is better to mix it up. Hope you have good luck we have shot a few the geese have been here for about 2 months so they know what is up. We really need to get some new birds. :salude:

Why not just add Blue Rags VS the honker Rags? Considering how cheap they are, a 100 Blues surely would not bust the bank account.
