I have a chance to purchase some Hyalophora cecropia eggs that should be laid any day now. The problem is that the trees here in Michigan are just beginning to bud, and although I believe we should have green leaves by the time the eggs would hatch (three or four weeks from now), I don't know for sure. I'm not going to purchase them if there is a chance that I won't have food for the caterpillars when they emerge. I was wondering if anybody knows if there is anything that is already green that I could feed them, or if they'll eat something that I can buy like romaine lettuce or something. I tried to inquire about this with the seller, but they just replied that they can't send them to me if I can't feed them.
