I have two ornate box turtles in an outside enclosure. One of the females had a clutch over the winter. I've found one baby the size of a quarter. He is out and about. When do I need to bring this little one in and start caring for it? Or should I leave him in the outside enclosure and just feed it daily? When/how much will he eat? The mother is still hibernating. She uncovered herself but then covered herself back up. The other box is still totally covered. I don't know if we have any other babies as of yet. So I want to leave the enclosure alone until they bigger turtles are out. Is that wise or should I get the adults out of their holes and feed them? I've read that turtles don't typically eat for weeks after they come out. So when do I start putting food out there for them?
