Default Quill Loss

Hey all! I asked about some quill loss in my baby Avogadro previously, but it was just one Quill. As my previous post mentioned I recently got a second hedgehog from a guy who couldn't keep him. He was given to me with scaley ears and too long fingernails. I have had him a little over 2 weeks now and I have been noticing some substantial quill loss. Every time I wake him up for mommy-Dexter bonding time it seems his tshirt is covered in 7-8 quills. Then he shakes and more come off. I know he is still getting used to me. It took Avy almost 2 months before he completely warmed up and he can still be huffy. I was just wondering if perhaps this is due to stress and if you all think I should leave him be for a few days or if I should continue our daily routine?

He was said to be "a year and change" in age by the guy who gave him to me.

Any advice?
