Hi,
It takes a while for your turtles to adjust to their new environment. My turtles did not eat for the first two weeks that they were here. I kept calling vets and pet stores and they all kept telling me that it was normal. Just keep putting in some food and leave them alone and after a while they\'ll start eating.
If you\'re still concerned however, then try taking them to a vet.
Hope this helps
;)
