Chicken mushroom id?

3 posts in this topic

I picked this mushroom off the lawn a couple feet from the base of an oak tree. I believe it's a chicken mushroom.

Does anyone know for sure?

yes, looks like chicken of the woods. Past prime, no longer any good eating. It will likely rebloom from the same spot in the future. Keep an eye out for fresh growths if'n ya's hungry.

From what I found researching, it is the more desireable Laetiporus cincinnatus http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/jul2001.html

It just came up in the last couple days. I felt pretty sure it was what I thought from what I read. There are no dangerous look a likes, so I did cook and eat a small amount last night. Tasted like chicken.
