Did you need help to identify these? Looks like a nice group of oysters.
Never trust an online identification. Research the suggested species and do the necessary tests to properly identify. First step would be getting a spore print.
IF these turn out to be oysters they are a decent edible. I like them best on the grill cooked in the fat of the chicken I just removed until the edges turn crisp.
If you pan fry them be sure to cut into small chunks because they can be a bit rubbery.
Thanks yeah I Researched a little and then I found this website and I have no clue what you mean by spore counts I guess I’ll have to go research that too,to make sure they are oyster because that’s what I came up with I just wanted to be sure and thought I would ask people with little more experience with mushrooms
To make a spore PRINT put the mushroom gill side down onto a glass plate and cover over night. The next morning remove the mushroom and put the plate over a black piece of paper and then over a white piece of paper to determine what color the spores are.
This will help you to properly identify a mushroom. It's very handy when distinguishing between edible and deadly mushrooms such as the edible flammunlina velutipes (white spores) and deadly galerina autumnalis (rusty spores).
I second that,Pleurotus dryinus(Veiled Oyster Mushroom). I have no first hand experience though. I agree with celticcurl, always a very good idea to take spore print.
I take it you gals are from Louisiana? Lafayette, Breaux Bridge area here. Seems like we are very few people in take an interest in wild mushroom foraging
Hi My name is Eric I have recently just moved here about a year ago I’ve always been interested in mushroom hunting would like to know more about my area I am in the De Soto Parish Would like to know what’s in my area
Hey there Eric. Only thing I know is that Kisatchie National Forest is giant and I’ve found some edible species while there a few times. Chanterelles, Hericium(lions main), Armillaria (Honey mushrooms) just to name a few
Thank you for getting back to me I was wondering have you found morels in this area
Only knowledge I have of morels in Louisiana is absolutely nothing. Your guess is as good as mine. They should grow up north according to some of my sources. Soil is right, trees are there , guess it’s a matter of putting boots on the ground
Ok Thank you very much for all the information that you gave me
