You dont need a licence as such.
But all adults and hatchlings need certificates before you can sell them. As its illegal to sell without. You can give them away without certs.
On the form on DEFRA site, you need the adults microchip number and their cert number for hatchling certificates. There is a cost for each cert, but have not bred for many years now so dont know the costs.:0)

Hi sandy, Thank you for the information the reason im asking is some people are saying i need a licence and others are saying no, also some are saying the babies need to be Microchip for sale too but that would mean i would need to keep them until they reach a certain size very conflicting information out there xx

You only need to have the babies microchipped once their plastron length reaches 60mm up until then you can sell the babies without but each baby still needs an Article 10 licence. To licence the babies you must first have your adults microchipped and then registered with Defra and think each of these licences will cost 31.00. Once you've got these licences you can then apply for licences for your babies and you need to put the parents details which includes licence number and microchip number and then the number of hatchlings ie clutch of say 10 hatched between the dates concerned with a plastron length of less than 60mm. The cost for the hatchlings is 31.00 for the first and then 1.50 for each additional baby. If the hatchlings are larger then they would need to be microchipped. Hope this helps a bit.

DEFRA think its ok to micro chip with nano chips on hatchlings. But I for one think their legs are far too small:0(
So waiting until they are big enough is really the way to go:0)
