Nice pics.

Chicken of the woods is pretty good.. It has thick white flesh with a orange/red/yellow surface. I just tried some last season for the first time that I picked in the woods. I often find them to be very large and stand out quite well.

great pic of the chicken eris.. the ones i have found have been on standing trees or large fallen logs and look more like shelf mushrooms then that.. which looks to memore like a turkey tail formation or hen of the woods.. really pretty


doc- the pheasant back is pretty much done for this year.. they are some of the first mushies to come out in spring, before even morels.. you really want them at the button or just as they fan out as they get tough as they get older..

Haven't heard P squamosus called that before. We tend to call em dryads saddle over here.

You eat those? What are they like?

I found a young specimen a week or so ago but heard they aren't worth the belly room.

Chicken of the woods is out early here in the UK. Found a nice specimen at my local hospital but some asshole called security on me!

I was like hey, it kills trees! I'm doing you a favour!  :grin:

dryad's saddle yes! thats what i first knew them as but since ive learned the new name(as well as my teacher calling it that) ive adopted it and rather like it... i actually think there must be something in the name because when i knew of them as dryad's saddle i was not too impressed with them much at all.. i think the secret is truly in when you pick it, the younger the better.. once they get to be over 3 inches they are really getting tough, the younger the tenderer! if thats a word... we saute them in oil/maple syrup/tamari and broil/bake them or roast them over the fire, yum! they are great just sauted with butter in a pan too.. as long as you get them when they are tender... i actually sell them to gourmet restaurants now for $13/lb :smile:

The specimens I found were young and tender but I'll have to try them next season, I fear they're past they're best here now  :shrug:

matty,
There is a difference between the chicken mushrooms you've found and the ones pictured here. There are now several species of Laetiporus- the one pictured here that grows off of horizontal surfaces and spreads out in larger circles is laetiporus cincinnatus, while the "shelf" variety is the familiar laetiporus sulphureus.
I've heard that cincinnatus is tastier and more completely edible. I've found cincinnatus, but unfortunately didn't sample it because i left it out too long!
Nice finds, by the way

I remember collecting them in August. They grow quickly for polypores so get them when you see orange.
