She is african and she is 3 weeks old. She has a friend and is eating unmedicated chick starter. The other gosling is fine and I don't have any toys in the brooder. Should I put some in?

Do you have a thermometer in your brooder? Did it maybe get wet from the waterer, and get a bit of a chill? I know with ducklings you have to add a tiny bit of niacin to their feed, but I don't really know anything about feeding goslings.

If there's another gosling with her, then probably no need for toys. When someone has only a single gosling (or duckling, or chick) they often put in a stuffed toy for it to snuggle against, and a mirror so it can see another of its kind (its own reflection, really)--because these kinds of birds don't do well all alone. But you have two, so neither is alone.
