Default question about loosing baby quills?

During which quilling does a hedgie loose the last of its while skinny baby quills? I am trying to figure out approx what age my hedgie is, got her at a petstore. she is about 222 grams, and i just gave her a bath and she lost about 8 quills when i was playing with her after. she doesnt have many white skinny baby quills left, and has a lot of banded thicker quills growing in.

Every varies from one hedgehog to another by some amount so I can't give you any sort of "exact" number, but as a frame of reference, my little guy finally stopped losing little quills the about 3 or 4 days and and he just turned 13 weeks old yesterday.

thanks nebular, i didnt think she was qulling until after i gave her a bath cuz i hadnt really seen her lose quills, maybe 3 over the last few days but after the 8 she lost after the bath, im thinking maybe shes in her 8-9 week quilling and towards the end so maybe 10 weeks old but i would like to hear other opinions. she is still a poop machine so she cant be to old.

Whoops. That shold have read "3 or 4 days ago". I think he went through all of his baby quilling phases without ever having a break between any of them so it seems like one insanely long quilling phase. Poor little guy.
