Default Losing quills and it's not mites

Yesterday is when I noticed that there were 5 quills in hedgie's cage. Today I saw 3 quills. Today took hedgie to vet. She didn't see mites but she said his skin is dry. I read somewhere that hedgie's loose quills again when they r 18 months and he is approximately 1 yr and a half old. Is this normal? Has anyone experienced this before. The temp in cage is a constant 76-80 degrees and he is still eating,drinking, pooing and running on wheel and vet says he looks really healthy
