    Have you seen her mating? You should take an egg and crack it to see if it is fertile to make sure it's worth letting her go broody in winter and risk goslings dying.
    Geese go through a lot when sitting on eggs, winter may not be the best time to let her commit and stop eating/drinking/preening for the most part
