Chicken of the Woods This is a "shelf mushroom", growing in pale to vivid orange “shelves” on both upright and fallen trees. Be sure to leave some mushroom behind and cut several inches out from the tree when harvesting.
My Mom and I would go Chantrelle hunting while my dad and the Forester would go Roe hunting. My Mom taught me how to tell the huge fascinating mushrooms were poison. Take a stick, scratch it and if it turns purple - stay away.
