Ok so i've have had Orbie for about two monthes now, and i just noticed this morning that he has lost some quills, four of them to be exact. When i got him he was at the petstore for quite some time so i dont think that its quilling but i dont know his exact age (they dont even know). I wanted to know if this is just normal? or if i should consider taking him to the vet to check for mites.

Maybe he's going through his 1 year old quilling?

Col. Mustard is going through it right now... take a good look at his skin, you should be able to see some new quills coming up.

If he doesn't seem to be quilling and he keeps on losing quills, I'd take him to see the vet. ;)
