    I have 4 gooslings and they are starting to feather out but I dont know if they can stay out all night.
    They are 2 months old.

    :welcome It all depends upon the ambient temperature, and if they can be sheltered from inclement weather. Goslings that are not fully feathered are susceptible to chilling if they get wet.

    I'd suggest having a safe heating source (ex. heat lamp without flammable stuff near it) just in case as well as a place to hide from rain and strong wind (but with good ventilation).

    Sorry - just found error:
    "(ex. heat lamp without com)"
    should be
    "(ex. heat lamp without flammable stuff near it)."
