I would think if you want to captive breed (which certainly has its appeal) then since you already have an male 3-toe, start with a couple adult female 3-toes and see how it goes before buying a bunch. You might want to avoid buying wild caughts, and if you are patient you might be able to find captive born and raised adults. On the other hand, wild caughts may breed more readily for you. Alternatively you could raise up a group of CBBs yourself, if you have lots of patience, and I mean a lot of patience, lol.
Your 3-toed male probably won't even bother your juvi easterns if that is what you are worried about, he won't see them as competition, but that could change when they get bigger, and you may or may not be concerned with producing hybrids at some point, no judging either way here.
Heck Curtis, it's your turtle pen and your the one that has to take care of them.
more turtles = more work lol, like you don't already know that.
Have fun building your new turtle pen.
