Default Re: Hedgie loses a few quills when I handle him

That looks pretty normal to me. Keep in mind that "quills" are actually modified hairs, and like hairs they will be lost and replenished throughout his loss. I'm su re some of the more experienced owners will be by to give their opinions, but that looks like a healthy cinnicot to me.
