the durability for goose feather is better than duck, and the price is higher.
the difference for these two feather is delicate, duck feather is thinner than goose feather, if don't use bleach, duck feather is usually more white, but bleach will hurt the feathers.

Along the "shaft" of the feather, there is a groove in the goose one. The duck one doesn't have a groove but has those "lines" instead.
This is fascinating stuff. We learn something new on BC everyday.
