Feeding

Hi Everyone,

This may be a easy one, but how much should we be feeding our turtles, at present we are feeding them on a daily basis and they seem to think that they are not getting enough. I read in a book we got that they should at at least 2 X their head size in food each day. They get this plus more and still appear to be hungry. Is that enough? What do the rest of you feed your turtles. Any ideas or just comments would be good to hear.

Just a note we have both a male and female turtles, the female is 2 1/2 years old and the male is about the same, she is about 25cm long and he is 11cm. Amazing how different they both grow.

Thanks
