Hi guys, thanks for your support, I cant seem to get the link on this Slovenian Farm from the thread, but am I right in saying that the farm was producing between 3500 and 4000 hatchlings per year??? in which case, if we said that each female laid 10 eggs(2 clutches)per year, that would have to be around 400 females?! and that would not take into account non-fertile eggs, I just do not believe it!!!...T.T.

yeah I have just found the same link, it reads someting like this- The farm of turtles Testudo hermanni is located in Slovenia, one of the younger European states, in the northern-east part of the country, close to Austrian border.
1200 sexually mature females and 600 grown up males F1 generation are living on two lots with fence of 35.000 m2 surface.



The basic food of the animals is grass, as addition they eat weekly also 1500 kg of vegetables (salad, tomato) and fruit.
Each year the females lay in May and June 2-6 eggs into a hole in the earth, the owners then dig them out and put them into the incubators.

that really is terrible...T.T.

Well I guess you all know were I have been, still fighting the cause on the "other forum"...seems someone may have tipped off a tort lover called Sue to join the forum and "stick it to em", which she did, Sue was really clued up, I have a feeling she has been mentioned on here before?...anyone heard of her?...T.T.

Sue (Wizzamum) posts on the Tortoise Trust forum and also on the Tortsmad forum (I think she might be a moderator on one of them - not sure), and her advice is, as you say, really good.
