Default losing LOTS of quills- just a reassurance!!`

okay, first off, im positive theo is quilling. he is 5 months old or so and his 3 month quilling ended about a month ago. well, so now he is back to his grumpy- quilling self, and im just curious- how many quills are they supposed to lose? i usually collect the quills in his cage every day or 2 and i just noticed there were about 15-20 in his cage from last night and today alone. he also drops quills in my hands a lot. is this normal? thanks in advance for all you answerers out there

I think as long as he isn't balding and has new ones poking through that its ok My hedgie came to live with me at 3months old, I can't be sure if it was the stress of his new home or quilling but he would have 5-10 quills on the floor every morning but never looked like he had bald or sparse spots. Hope this helps
