    Yep sure is a hen. I like to break them down into leaflets and flour egg and bread crumb them and deep fry. Congrats!

    Finally found some chicken. Also saw some puffballs with little mushrooms growing out from under it. 20180909_161738.jpg 20180908_171544.jpg 20180908_171612.jpg

    Oh for Pete's sake...none of my early trees had anything on them this morning. In fact, almost no shrooms of any kind in our woods, and we had 8" of rain, 50-odd F temps. What more do mushrooms need!!! :p

    I hit it fairly hard looking for hens Sunday and really struggled. Not a single 1!! I found a small handful of chanterelles and a smaller handful of black trumpets then savedthe day with a nice chicken.

    I haven't looked for hens before this year, is this one. It doesn't look the same as the black staining polypores I have found but it looks darker than the pictures I have seen of hens. IMG_3723.JPG IMG_3722.JPG

    I also found these today. I think they are beefsteak fungus but could be wrong. I didn't harvest them. They were near living oak trees, one was actually on a red oak.The top was really moist and the bottom was kind of white with pores. I pulled the top off of one and it had ridges in the middle.

    Hey beagle. It's definitely not a hen, and probably an old black staining polypore. Grifola frondosa has a much more grey coloration rather than tan on top, and you can see it has stained black where it was damaged or rotting.

    Yes, that is beefsteak. Grab a flashlight and get back out there! :)

    Plus that looks to be a maple, which I have never found a hen around. Most of my finds are around white oaks, sometimes red oaks, and rarely beach trees. They definitely prefer the fagus genus.

    IMG_3724.JPG IMG_3726.JPG I also found these today. I think they may be a more mature version of the same mushroom that trahn showed in post 349. Could you tell me what they are.

    I didn't bring any back for a spore print in case they were a poison type. I had chanterelles in my bag to eat.
