Unhappy Quilling? Been there, done that experiences please!

So our little man (wild euro hog) seems to finally be over his chronic lung condition. We haven't had any coughing for at least 48 hours which is a huge milestone. He has gone from 49g to 61.4g and looks very good. Good eyes, clear nose. He had 3 rounds of antibiotics and 2 rounds of wormer. We have noticed in his areas where there had been the worst mite issues he is growing spines, but in areas where there were no issues, he is losing quills.

Is this quilling? I have no way of estimating his age, other than he's young but not 'baby' young. If he were born in the late Spring he could possibly be 4 months old? He is not particularly grumpy, but he is being very fussy with regards to food.

And he rejects mealworms. I thought they'd be a fantastic source of fat and protein but he simply stomps on them and ignores them. The poor things just get mulched with those feet.

We are going into autumn, so I was wondering what the general room temp you keep the room at during quilling? I assume since he is losing quills he will feel the cold more easily?

So yes, quilling experiences please. It sucks being a noob!!

To be honest Im not the best to answer this as I am new to hedgies myself but I have gone through quilling with Baby Girl.

Loosing quills is what quilling is, but could it be that the other quills he's loosing is from the mites? Like quills that were effected but hadn't fallen out yet? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I would say keep an eye on him, don't change the temp he's fine with that. If you notice he's loosing a crazy amount of quills then I would call your vet.

Someone else should answer this though because Im not the best source, as I said lol plus I'm not sure if its the same for wild euro hogs.

Thanks GoldenEyes.

I suppose it could be that the mite affected spines are finally falling out. Gah. I am a cat girl and this is all so new to me!
