Do not turn the turtle eggs! I dont think that they are urm wuhz the word, have real babies in them that are growing cuz I dont think red ear sliders and box turtles would mate. But just in case, put the egg in a box of fine sand or dirt. Make shure the temperature is around 75-80. Also mist the eggs every day or so. If it does indeed have a baby inside, it should hatch in a month or so?
