Do you have any pictures that show more of her quills? That would be really helpful.

Right now I'm going to make a wild guess and say Algerian Chocolate.

Algerian Chocolate Pinto. The nose has pinto patches on it, so even if there aren't any areas with white quills, she's still pinto.

Yes, Algerian Chocolate is pretty much the most common colour, with White-Bellied Chocolate a close second. The reason for this is that these are the two wild colours - the native colours. Because of this, hedgehog colours have a naturally tendency to "drift" back to chocolate. For example, Apricot bred to Grey will produce mostly Chocolate even though several other colours besides Chocolate lie between the two. Being the dominant colour form, Chocolate tends to "win out".
