Apply for certs on the .gov form Matt after having them chipped at the vets. You will need the chip numbers to be able to do this. Once the certs are updated, you apply using the same form for certs for the babies, which will be legal for yourself up until they are 6cm plastron length. After this size you cannot sell them or use for breeding purposes until the certs have been updated and they have been chipped the same as the parents ;) hope this makes sense ;)
