These are probably common poisonous shrooms, but I find them growing in my yard a lot, and I was just wondering what they are. Are these anything? Are they even edible? Anything you can tell me will be appreciated.

none of those look magical but im no expert... for sure the ones with white gills arent any good i get those growing EVERY where in my area- they grow big and white and nifty looking but there nothing but a pain in the ass.

Well for a start, pinch them and see if they bruise blue/purpleish. But they really do not look magical at all.

I'd still like to know whether they're poisonous or not. I suppose I could try one and see if I get sick, but I really don't want to get sick. And, of course, I really don't want to get dead. :what: I don't see how people can ID these things. I can't find one picture that even looks close to any of them.

Just looking at pictures to try and find something that looks like what you found is not an accurate or effective method of identification.
Compiling a list of identification features is required. Spore print color is one of the most important features. There is a list of some of the things that you need to make note of in the guidelines thread.

Well, I figured that would be a starting place, anyway. They don't seem to bruise, although, unless it was very pronounced, I probably couldn't tell. I'm a bit color blind. What guide are you talking about? Where do I start?

Well a place to start would be here http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/2263556/an/0/page/0

There is a lot of reading involved and much to learn when starting out in this hobby... I know it can be quite overwhelming but patience and persistence pays off. Just remember that it takes time.

It is something I'm interested in learning. I live in a freaking farm town, so shrooms are readily available, if you know where to look. I'm tired of paying for them. Thanks, I'll start reading.

You have nothing active. There is a good chance that some of those are poisonous.

Keep reading; learn the Latin names of the actives which grow in your area, research those species and you will be on your way. Remember that some mushrooms are deadly, so be careful.

Also, learn how to make a spore print. Spore color is the first identifying characteristic that we check to determine genus.

Is there a thread that tells how to make a spore print? I searched, but didn't exactly find anything on that.

Nevermind...I found the guide. Is this generally the best way then?

Unfortunately, my state isn't listed in the guide to the types found.
