I just realized I don't really know how old my turtles are. 2 are about 1.5 inches and the other is about 2 inches. I just got all 3 of them recently. I'm not sure how much to feed them since I have no idea of their age.

doesn't really matter their age. feed them,every day, what would fit inside their head excluding the neck. when they get bigger, you can feed them every other day, the same amount.

Diet and living conditions can effect the growth rate, unless you know when they were hatched, it's hard to tell how old they are

I'd feed them every day until their shell lengths were about 3.5 inches, then every other day (this is for the pellets, you have give plant matter daily).
