i wouldn\'t feed them beef or pork. it\'s too fatty. i also wouldn\'t give them anything raw since they may contain bacterial diseases. cooked plain chicken is good as a treat.

Yes it can transmit harmful bacteria to your turtle. I would scratch that idea just to be on the safe side. They sell calcium sprays and blocks for calcium.

You can also buy powder calcium. I buy one with Vit D in it and wet the pellets then coat them with calcium powder.
