New hedgehog, loosing quills. First time hedgehog owner!
 
We got a 6 week old hedgehog Saturday, she is our first hedgehog. She's been loosing a decent amount of quills since bringing her home. Everytime we take her out and put her into her bonding pouch she always leaves some in there. When I clean out her cleaning area everyday there's always some in there. Today I gave her alittle bath to rinse her off and some more came out in the towel.

I'm a new hedgehog owner so I'm just assuming this is quilling and normal for a young hedgehog. Especially eith the stress of being moved into a new home and situation. I guess I'm just looking for assurance.lol

Also how long does quilling last?

I'm not sure if it matters but she is eating, drinking and using the bathroom.( that's te reason she needed a bath)

6 weeks sounds right for quilling. Don't worry too much (:
