    I did. Here she is. On the left. Just got her from Vicki last week. And she was given a clean bill of health by the Vet. What I do like is that she cares about her Tortoises. I had a bad experience with another Breeder who had no interest whatsoever in knowing what was wrong with the one that he sold me that died. I wanted two - so thats when I found Vicki. This little tortoise looks better than the other one that I have. Her name is Juliet. And Malkovich is on the right. I highly recommend Vicki's tortoises. a Malkovich and Juliet dueling Mango 6-24-16 03 reduced.jpg

    I have 3 little Tortoiseyard torts, purchased from Vicki Hale at the end of March 2016. Pictured L-R, are Luna (Redfoot), Terra (Cherryhead), and Stella (Redfoot). In the bottom photo they are about 7-8 months old, pictured with my 3-year old torts from another breeder.

    Vicki's torts arrived healthy, always have a great appetite, are growing nicely, and have beautiful colors and patterns. They are smart and inquisitive, not shy, easy to handle, trainable, and so darn cute! I send Vicki updates on their progress, because she is a wonderful breeder who really cares about her animals. She was able to give me precise information on each of the torts' lineage, and is always available to answer questions. It is clear to see from her website that the parent torts are well cared for. If you are in the market, I would highly recommend purchasing one (or three!) from Tortoiseyard.....

    Quick thing: I would be cautious and separate your large RF's from your babies. It is not only dangerous, but also unhealthy. You also want to quarantine any new tortoise. Over all, check the care sheets in the RF section to learn more about this all.

    Yes, they were quarantined for around 3 months. The 3 hatchies were in a separate nursery box inside the large enclosure with the bigger torts. So they could sense each others' presence, but did not have direct contact. The photo of them at the food dish is one of the first times I let them eat together (supervised), and as you can see the big ones are being nice and not trampling on the little ones!

    Tuesday (Cherryhead) does not live with the other 3 as she is still too small
