The normal white geese are called exactly that. They may have been descendant from Danish hybrid geese and others who are in turn derived from Embden geese.pure embden are very rare. Pair of geese usually around 40 Euro for whites.
They can be housed with hens yes but some individuals may attack them. Best to just keep an eye on them for a day or two to suss that out.
