    They start any time from the first of March to mid April. Sadly I can't get them to start sooner with my Christmas lights.[​IMG]

    BOBS NEED LIGHT AND TEMPERATURE SO IF YOU'RE IN A NORTHERN OR EXCEPTIONALLY FRIDGID CLIMATE IT MAY BE A WHILE YET

    Forgot that, yankees warm up a tad bit slower. Hey, they don't catch on as fast either. Must have spread it to the birds. Just tell them spring is here.[​IMG]
