Default Number of quills lost while quilling?

So I've had my little guy for 2 weeks now and when I first got him, he was only losing a couple of quills per night but when I woke up this morning, I've counted 30+ quills he lost last night. While holding him, he lost 3 in 5 minutes. Is that a normal amount to be losing in such a short amount of time while quilling?

Yes, totally normal, in fact that is on the lower side of what they can loose at a time. Some loose quills fast and when they give a shake, it looks like a snow storm of quills.
