WE GOT A PAINTED TURTLE LAST MAY AND SHE HAS LAID EGGS AND JUST THIS SAT (04/09/05) they came out, we got a total of five little ones. our question is how soon do they eat. we have brought them inside (our pond has large koi) have a basking light and water dry rocks and got bady turtle food and wee gupies ,but we do not think they have eaten. are they ok ? when do they eat? any help.

I would think that soon after they loose their yolk sac they might start to eat turtle food, maybe after their belly finishes sealing itself.
