I have a turtle we caught about a month ago. She laid an egg but it's turing colors so I don't think it made it. I'll have to throw it out. How do I know if she's eating enough? What should I feed her? She eats strawberries but that's the only thing I know for sure she is eating. I give her lettuce, tomatoes, blackberries, blueberries, I bought box turtle food which she doesnt touch, there are crickets in her cage with her... how do I know if she's getting enough???
Well you have to find out what type of turtle you got first. I know box turtles are mainly carnivorous (meat eaters). Tortoises eat mainly greens. How big is it? Can you post a pic? Did she lay the egg above ground? Eggs have to be laid in dirt to survive. Where do you keep her?
If she's a tortoise I don't think they go for bugs. Carrots are very important cause that's vitamin A. Usually I give my turtles food every other day and I let them eat as much as they want (cause their body will tell them how much and what). The food is a mixture of veggies and pieces of chicken but that's what my box turtles eat and we have to find out what your turtle is. Pics would be very helpful if you can post some. Oh, and make sure you always have a water bowl in there for her (if you don't already).
