One of my guys wasn't very crabby when he was quilling. Granted, he was never as friends as Maiche is, but he didn't seem to mind us touching him or his crawling around (and pooping on) everything.
I asked the vet if it was mites or something like that. While she didn't seem to do an extensive search on her, she said Maiche was fine. Maiche is now 3 months old, and pardon my ignorance, but I really don't know the quill loss rate when quilling.
