I’ve admired this beautiful fungus, but never knew what it was called until I started this blog. While doing research I learned some people actually cook and eat this fungi (please note I am not responsible if you do this). However, some sites say it is poisonous depending on the tree it grows on. I think I’ll just leave it on the tree, thank you very much. Perhaps I will just cluck at it while snapping its profile.
Here are the facts: actually called “chicken of the woods”. Has a chicken like texture. Orange, yellow when young, turns white as it ages.
