If you have a male turtle around, it's most likely fertile. If you're not sure u can shine a flashlight into the egg in the dark. If u see red lines or veins, its fertile. If there's nothing inside, it's not fertile. If u find that it's fertile, u can mark the egg somehow to make sure it doesn't rotate and put it in an incubator. It takes about 2 months to hatch I think. Fun fact: if you keep it in cooler temperature (about 27c), it will hatch out a male and if you keep it in a warmer temperature (about 30c), it will hatch out a female!!
Thanks for replying! That's cool! I am pretty sure they are fertile because she had been around a male, i don't see veins yet but I think it's just because they are not old enough, they are chalking though!

Yes, I have a lot of turtle space outside, my whole garden and pond area is completely animal safe because I let my sulcata roam and eat a lot (supervised). Should I keep her in a fenced-in area, or an enclosure like a tub or baby pool?
Make a fenced-in area to give her as much natural like choices as possible.
