I would suggest you not to breed them yet. It is generaly advisable not to breed T. lepidus until at least two years of age, and preferably three. Although they reach sexual maturity much earlier, early breeding puts a tremendous stress on young females' bodies and can shorten their lifespan quite a bit.
Adult females can produce at least two clutches, and if properly fed probably three clutches per season. Clutches can be anywhere from 6 to over 20 eggs, but in my experience they average 12-15 eggs/clutch. Hope that helps.

Regards

Nino
