Hello,
For detailed advice about incubating eggs, click on the green box on left, titled "The Tortoise" & the sub-heading - "Captive Breeding."
However, your torts should be in hibernation by now, rather than being active. Action is needed to get your female(s) into a normal breeding cycle, or there is a danger of more & more eggs being laid during this natural rest period - (hibernation).
Start by removing the male(s) to a separate enclosure.
Can you post full details of your torts please including housing, so that I can give you further advice.
Regards,
Tom
