From what I understand, it should all be done at 12 weeks.

I've read that it could be anywhere from a few weeks to months :s
My little guy has had a rough last quilling. And for him it didn't all happen at once. First his back then right side now it's his left side and it looks really painful so I don't touch him a lot when I take him out cause I can tell it hurts. I just let him roll into a ball in my hand and go to sleep.
Poor little ones having to go through this

Hedgehogs usually go through quilling 4 times, I believe. First at 4 weeks, then 6 weeks, at 9, and another at 12... but I think I might be wrong.

Also, some hedgehogs can have yearly quillings, or seasonal quillings, and some also quill very late. Kashi quilled very late at around 6 months.

And like people losing hair occasionally, hedgehogs will do the same
