Some people do cross breed tortoises, and they are healthy. But most genuine keepers think that species should be kept pure.
Sometimes accidents do happen, and one species will escape and get into another species enclosure. But on the whole, cross breeding is not good.

Depends on the temperature you are incubating at:0)
If 32.5 its around 60 days.
So lower temps will be longer:0)

You really must wind them down properly.
If you have not fed the tortoises that want to hibernate for a few weeks, then they should be ok. If not, then try and keep them going for a couple more weeks, so their stomachs are empty:0)
