Had one old hedgie undergo quill loss recently (never happened before). Dry, flaky skin seems to affect quill loss as well. Try increasing your hedgie room's humidity up and moisturize his skin. Feeding foods rich in Vit.E and fats like eggs and veggie oils may also help promote better quill health and production of new quills.
