At 8-19 weeks of age he's just starting to do his major quilling and dry skin is quite common with that. As long as the scratching isn't excessive and there are no bald spots showing I wouldn't worry about it. You can give him an oatmeal bath to help soothe his skin and make quilling easier on him.

What type of wood are the shavings made from?
