I have found 5 baby box turtles in my enclosure so far this year. I've been finding one or two every few days for the past couple of weeks. I have a feeling there will be more appearing. Right now I have 4 adult females, 4 males, 3 juvi females ( I think) plus one one year old and the 5 new babies. I let my turtles do their thing naturally. They breed, lay their eggs, and the incubate over winter, then hatch out in the spring

Last year I only found one baby. I'll post some pics later.
