Do LEDs behave differently?

I wired a set of 3 LED ceiling lights in series and they often flash several times before steady state when turned on. Are LEDs just odd or am I missing something?

They may be in a row but they are wired in parallel. LED's usually only act that way when connected to a dimmer. With a standard switch they should just come straight on.
