Shes most likely quiling babies quil about 3 times into they get full adult quils. a easy way to find out if she has mites is take a dark colored shirt or something and let her sit in it after a while pick her up and see if you see any bugs.

No specific reason why I think it might be mites. I've just read on here that when they have mites they loose quils too. Here is a picture of what her quills looks like.

If she has mites she would be scratching a lot, if she's not scratching then it's unlikely that she has mites.
