Lynx was born on April 5th of this year and started her latest quilling at 2 months old. She is still losing a lot of quills all the time and she's almost 3 and a half months old now. I know some hedgies go through it longer than others, but is this normal? She likes to burrow underneath her cage liner and I always find a lot of them under there, however there are also a lot on top of the liner as well. She doesn't have any patches missing but she still seems irritated on her back. What do y'all think?

If there's an obvious spot of irritation on her back, could you post a picture of it? How's her activity and food/water intake? It's possible she has mites, but unless she's really itching like crazy she may just have dry skin. Try a few oatmeal baths and see if that helps.

There's no obvious spot that I can see and her activity/food/water intake is normal. I'll try the bath tonight and see if it helps.
