It varies between hedgies. Some of them only lose a 2 or 3 a day (sometimes even less!) and some of them lose 10-15 or more. At three months, I would suspect that she is quilling, especially if she's not scratching herself.

This page has some more information on quilling: https://hedgehogcentral.com/quilling.shtml.
Wells she does scratch, but more or less at the frequency I scratch, lol
