I would feed the babies in a separate container to make sure they are getting what they need one at a time! Food can cause aggression with having the other 2 -4" turtles in with babies ! Yet another reason to separate the larger ones. Even they may one day have to be separated too. May get out of hand if one day you need 4 tanks ? Could take your time to find a good home ( 2-4" ) if it would be off budget for 4 habitats. This is long term , when adults all will need upgrades. Males can get 9" and females 12" . Something to think about ! You will also need a quarantine tank if one got sick or could make the other sick too ! Lots of turtle problems are contagious.
