Average Daily Loss of Quills?
 
I've had my hedgehog, Chestnut, for about 2 months now (she is around 3 months old), and I believe that she has been in some stage of quilling since I got her, but now I'm not sure.

When I first got her, she was losing a few quills a day, then she started to lose around 20 a day. These days she is losing around 5-7 quills a day. I am wondering if she is still quilling or if this is normal, daily shedding? Chestnut is my first hedgehog, so I don't know if it is normal for them to shed some quills daily. All of the quills she loses have the root or "knob" at the ends.
