How big are they? It's hard to tell by the picture....

And, what are you feeding them? Try adding more fruits and veggies to their diet. This way you offer them more variety of food and it's good for healthy skin and shell. I like to feed my box turtles fruits like cantaloupe, blue berries, rasberries, apple, a little bit of orange, and for veggies things like dandelion greens, mustard greens, collard greens, parsnips, winter squash, beans in the edible pods (like green beans, snow peas and many others) with the occasional others. Yellow and orange colored veggies and fruits are great for the skin. (Parsnips have a lot of vitamin A, which is really good for the skin and shell.) Look up the list of which veggies and fruits to use as the main staple and which only for occasional uses for varying the diet at: www.anapsid.org ,or www.greenigsociety.org. They have a complete listing of fruits and veggies.
