Hi everyone,

Our little Hitch has started to loose his belly hair/fur and we just wanted to ask if it is normal for him to loose quite a large amount of hair in the spring. The sun is out more, and the temperature outside has been going up steadily and we've noticed that he is loosing a large amount of hair in his pen, while he is sleeping in his fleece tent, and while being handled at night (our shirts get covered with enough to notice).

Just wanted to know if we should worry whatsoever.

No large quill loss to note but he has lost two small quills in the past week.

Cheers,
R.

Mine are doing this too! I think it is because of sping also! I know they do not have mites but if your not shure I would take him to the vet to rule out that.

I'd also bet it's spring shedding. Inky's just getting over a bout of quilling, and it sounded like a few others were as well. :)
