You are very helpful!
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

:Try feeding hard boiled egg whites. If they eat them try feeding them egg whites with a small amount of the shell on.
:OR
:get some calcium carbonate or calcium gluconate at a drug store (sold as pills for human consumption) and put these in the water (way cheaper than reptile calcium supplements)
:OR
:try feeding whole fish (dead or alive) the bones are great source of calcium
:OR
: stuff feeder fish (dead) with chunks of calcium pills
:OR
:raise earthworms in a calcium-rich soil (you add the calcium, just grind up the pills from above) and feed the worms to the turtles
:OR
:feed some shell fish (cooked) with shells intact
:these are some ideas there are other ways too

:also

:avoid egg shell or shell fish shells with small turtles...they can choke!
