:I have 2 RES hatchlings (1.5" in length). I feed my turtles 5 Reptomin BABY sticks every day and give them veggies to munch on occassionally. They generate fair-sized poop (measuring 1/2") 2-3 times a day. Do they poop too much? I read somewhere that too much poop is not healthy.

I also have 2 res babies ( 1.5 - 2 ) inches. I prob feed them around the same as you. Maybe 5-6 small sticks (broken in half for easy swallowing). Their poop seems to be about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch long and after a day or so, I'll see 2 - 4 pieces of poop, sometimes more.

I am no expert but I've read in a number of places to feed hatchlings once a day. I can't get someone to tell me the amount but I read something like feed as much as they want within a few minutes. Given that, my turts appear happy and healthy so there is at least one other owner who has a similar scenario.
