Hi all,

My box turtle seems to be doing better now that she is staying
outside. As you recall from my earlier post all the former owner said she would eat is corn and didn't eat much. She has been eating every couple of days now and accepting other foods as well. I took everyone's advice and chopped everything up and mixed it together. This morning she had chopped turnip and collard greens, mixed vegetables, dry dog food, a little hard-boiled egg and strawberries mixed with a calcium/D3 supplement. She finished all of it. Hopefully she will start eating daily and gain some weight.

If she continues to eat a variety will it make a difference if she is only eating a 2-3 times a week?

Thanks,
Linda
