welcome to the board :)

almost how old are ur turtles? sometimes females do the mating dance so i think it depends on turtle intelligence cz i heard a lot about doing it to rocks :o

anyways, check the links and the most important thing is put some soil or sand so they can dig in (when they are ready to lay eggs) and keep it above water so in case u miss them u don't lose them..u have to keep watching out for those eggs until they are there and get them out immediately especially if they were in water so the babies don't die due to lack of oxygen in water

good luck and keep us posted

I also recommend reading Willie's post. It is at the top of this page and it covers all aspects of breeding.
