It is possible to get hybrids with the American box turtles such as eastern and threetoed

Any American subspecies can produce with other subspecies. After mating they become gravid during the next laying season usually (April-July). Eggs take 45-80 days to hatch.

They can hold sperm for years so I suspect it's possible to produce mixed offspring from multiple males, but I could never prove that. I have seen enough variety in a single clutch to suspect it happens though.

Then she may produce offspring from both even in the same clutch.
