Decided maybe I should dig around with my hands the same area were the other clutch was laid because I saw what looked like test hole or disturbed dirt repacked. Sure enough I found another clutch of eggs about a foot away from the other clutch I found on Saturday. Found four good eggs, the eggs are a little smaller than the 1st clutch and they are whiter in color, but they all candled with veins. I put them on hatchrite media and am incubating them at 82-84 degrees in a tub, similar to the conditions I hatched out the painted and 3-stripe mud turtles out at, only I have the box turtle eggs in slightly less wet media, so hopefully will hatch out, fingers crossed, wish them luck.
