Depends on the weather, roughly twice a week but prefer to feed the morning after a warm front or rain, which is when they are usually most active, so I watch the weather and read the turtles, after studying them over the years I can usually predict what days they will feed heavy and be out and what days it's a waste to even put food out. They don't eat a lot in April and May, mainly just nightcrawlers here and there to get their gut going, but right now is when they really start porking out and into July and August. When it starts to get hot around here and they really get active and feeding I might feed them every other day. When they look hungry I feed as it is a short season here in Iowa. They totally chowed down this morning as we had a warm night last night.
