Default Losing quills

My hedgie has the last week lost around 10 quills, and she is a year and some months old.
Is it because of the spring is around the corner? Or that her room has been a little colder than usual?
It looks like she eats, pees and poops like normal. And she's grumpy like she always is

I think we are around 20 quills now.
Few days ago i began to weight her food.

How much do your hedgies eat? (in grams, please)

Could she be going through a 1 year old quilling? If so, you would be able to see new quills growing. . Is she scratching a lot?

Mustard weights 325gr and eats about 6-7gr of kibble/night, plus six mealworms or 1 teaspoon of Wellness Healthy Indulgence (it's a wet food.)

Is there a 1 year quilling? If so, she's just a little late
I don't see her scratch, so I really don't know.

And she eats about same amount as Mustard

Some hedgies will go through a 1 year old quilling, Mustard did. Keep an eye on her to make sure you see new quills growing.
