    This is the first chicken of the woods I found while actually hunting for them. It is growing from the roots of an upturned hemlock tree. I think I read on here that there are some issues with ones that are growing on conifers. Please let me know if that is right. IMG_3529.JPG

    Beagle, every field guide I have used warns to stay away from chickens on conifers. Not everyone will get sick, however they do produce a sensitivity reaction much more frequently than those harvested from deciduous trees.

    Probably a fly agaric, if not than it's likely a russula od some type

    This area produced a lot of chants last season but it looks like someone took a skid steer through it to put new gravel on the path. Could the disturbance of the ground screw up the productivity of the patch?
