Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

Shes 14 years old. It is probably the healthiest she has ever been. I have never ever experienced her having eggs. But from the description on the internet shes super aggressively trying to get out of tank. Pushing against the egg crate trying to spiderman it.. Scratching her back legs by themselves in her basking area. Then she scratches her front legs and it's like shes looking down or scratching her nose? I did buy a decent container and some dirt which I'm drying out now with some sand. It rained recently so all dirt is wet. By that quick discription should I be worring? It's been happening the last 4-6 days. A few days after I changed her setup which she seemed to love from her doing normal turtle stuff and no scratching.

It does sound like eggs. Have you tried feeling for them first?
