What sort of substrate do you have? Is it possible that they are digging into it and mnaging to tip over. The best thing to do is watch them, and see what is causing them to tip over and if you can remove it.. The things that cause them to tip over are also helpful for them to turn back over the right way, such as bankings, rocks and brances. Removing some or all of these things may help or make it worse, so it depends what they are turning themselves over on. Some tortoises just climb the walls of their cage and tip over, so objects in the cage maybe helpful, if they are turning themselves over on a banking flatten it out ect. You are doing the right thing making sure they dont stay on thier backs to long, they will suffocate.
