    Hi, I have turtle eggs in my tank. How long do they take to hatch?

    Hi

    With the exception of the northern species Kevin mentioned the other eggs need to be incubated on dry land or incubator. If your turtles have laid the eggs in water retrieve them. I have acquaintances who have claimed successfully hatching the eggs after this. Craig, Kevin and Simon have a wealth of knowledge with respect to this.

    A lot more information required. This is like asking... "I have rice in a pot of water, how long will it take to cook?"
