New owner of 4 Eastern Painted Turtles

Post any questions you have about a turtle outdoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your outdoor setup picture we would love to see it.

I just got them from a Florida turtle farm and they were shipped to Oregon where I live today. I just put them in my backyard pond today where they are enclosed in by a rock wall, but they have a couple rocks and log so they can bask in the summer sun. I also have a good amount of flouting plants and lilly pads that they like to eat off of and hide in. Also, I just bought a scare crow water sprinkler that I set, and when anything moves around the pond, it starts spraying so no more Blue Harons come and eat anymore of my Koy or my new babies. I just wanted to ask you guys if there is anything else you think I should do in my pond for them. It seems like they like it, but I want it to be perfect. So far they have been eating some blueberries that I put in. Thanks guys!

Wow if i were your turtles i would be very happy with my 5000 gallon pond as a home.
I want to build a pond for my turtle eventually. I might be getting tips off of you in the future. by the way that was a great idea you had putting in a sprinkler to get rid of unwanted guests. I would have never thought about it:)
