    My goose seems to losing a lot more feathers then usual. The small feathers on her neck seem to be a thinner that normal. She was just involved in a predator attack where she lost her gander friend. Could this just be problem due to stress?

    Could it just be her time to molt

    I don't know about geese but stress can cause molting in chickens.
