    We went out to lock the chickens and turtles up. And looked into the the turtles cage and there was a nest of eggs. Is there anything we sould do? When will they hatch?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    what kind are they, and are you sure you have a male and female?
    Also, I believe they bury thier eggs (they need to be anyway) to make sure they are the right tmep and humidity.....
