Default Is a chill tempermant possible when quilling?

My baby Praline is 9 weeks old and from everything I've heard about quilling, hedgies get sensitive and huffy when they start. However, I have noticed some quills coming off on my hands and in the towel after I dry her off from a bath for about a week now, and she has no change in tempermant... If anything, she seems even MORE comfortable around me than before.

Does that mean it's not quilling, and should I be concerned? Or is it actually possible for them to be more relaxed than ever during this?

Thank you! ?

PS: By chill I don't mean immobile, she likes running and exploring, she just doesn't ball up or huff at me any more.

Hello! My baby, Fawn, is also quilling, and I've only had her for about a week now. But she's a super sweet baby and has really bonded with me already. She also doesn't huff much anymore and doesn't ball up.
I don't think you should be concerned at all! You might just have a super sweet pokey child that doesn't mind your company!

My hedgie Pepper is currently going through her second quilling at 4 months old, and is just as happy as she was during her first quilling. I definitely did not notice any grumpiness either one of these times. Consider it a blessing!

Ichiro is already 1.5 years old and he has always been laid back, he never balls up and you couldn't tell he was quilling, he's always been very friendly and relaxed.

You guys are so lucky! I got my girl just as she started quilling at 4 months. She's an adorable little huffball
