Default 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?
