Default Red Spots on Quills

I just got a new hedgehog, she is my 1st. On her back there is a patch of red spotted quills. I gave her a bath and scrubbed the quills as hard as I felt was comfortable. Nothing changed, as I look closer the red seems to be a part of the quill. Any ideas? Is this normal?

Looks like paint used to mark her to identify her.
