Egg Laying

Need a bit of advice on how to help my turtles lay their eggs...
They are all about two and a half years old and it says that this is the age that they start laying eggs.
I am not sure if they are male or female.
I do not want them to become egg bound.
Is there a certain month that they lay eggs.
Thanks

just make sure they have the right place to lay their eggs, find out exactly the enviorment that they need. and hope you dont have a boy and a girl or you can have lots of turtles

=) but baby turtles are sooo adorable! haha. BUT you definitely dont want them if you cant care for them! at the ak zoo we were surprised to come into work one day and see a little turtle just chillin in the dirt. then 2 weeks later, theres another one! we moved the male across the room after that! haha. but we just had a container of durt and grass, and thats where they lay their eggs.

Should I put them in a box of sand without water?
How long should I leave them there?

you shouldnt take them out of their tank, on the land area you need to make the right conditions to nest in. i suggest you get a good turtle book that covers it. personally i dont know, find a good book it will help on other things as well

Im not positive. But I would use dirt instead. that is what we use at the zoo. they LOVE to dig in the dirt. and lay eggs. but definitely look it up.
--pesticide free dirt too!!!--
