I do not have an Id on the wood type it is growing on. Chicken of the woods is very common here. Can I get an Id on this to confirm? dc855ee4fa29487a4158c709dac89e61.jpg

Looks just like any of the chicken of the woods I’ve found. Also don’t think there are any lookalikes,poisonous or not.

Sorry. I misread the question. Do you have any other clues to the wood type? Dead leaves,nearby saplings? Only bad tree I’ve seen these grow in was eucalyptus. Never on any coniferous trees or potentially troublesome woods other than that.

I could be wrong since not certain of location and don’t know your trees.

That tight grain still looks like oak everytime I look at it.

I'm impressed. I just did some forensics around the area. Mostly oak and what I think is hornbeam. The log definitely looks like oak. Case closed.

That's a good eye you got.

Do you know if this is hornbeam? I didn't get a good photo of a mature tree, but it has a very smooth like bark. I have gotten the ovoid leaves mistaken with beech previously.

Also, do you know if there is any non-agar methods to clone this chicken?7add883e1258444919d2cbebb584fd68.jpgfc7ff171c07bdac4fb08b7b932f4862d.jpg87f4783beb818c60c27cd3e3dec07657.jpg

Any of these lying around? It’s been decades since I’ve even seen an American hornbeam,and never seen a European one. But they both drop fuck tons of these once a year,just not sure what time of year it is

Not sure to be honest. You can try to run some of the myc on moist cardboard. I never seen anyone do that with Sulphur shelf but it’s worth a try if you are just doing for experiment.

Also maybe blend some of the base in water and see if it will Noc up sawdust.

Do you have a long growing season for those? The window here is in the late fall and the window is short and it fluctuates.

And have you eaten it yet? Soooo good. The texture is the best and awesome replacing chicken in a Caesars salad

I haven't ate it yet. I'm worried about conservation in my area, so I'm just letting it chill.

I've been looking around and found another small one, but I think these are the early birds of the season.

Thanks for the replies, mate! I think they'll be more chickens to come!56b51d1748aae2caad4603f981a66c66.jpg

That mushroom, Laetiporus sulphureus is prolific here in the Great Lakes Area of the USA....the growing tips are tasty and tender but as they get bigger it's like shoe leather.

 

It will be a couple of months before they fruit here usually anyway......never heard of anyone propagating them actually.

 

But a couple of months after these come out the Grifola frondosa start fruiting and those are my absolute favorite mushroom to date......

 

Cool stuff man you can see them from like a mile away.......

I had good results growing Laetiporus Cincinnatus on agar.  It looked like orange sherbet.  I didn't get any further though.  My understanding is that it has a parasitic relationship with oak trees.  I haven't seen anyone successfully fruit them either.

 

Every year there's one that fruits from the base of a tree just down the block from me.  The first time I found it, it was massive but still tender and we had chicken for a solid week or so.

I literally just put this on cardboard a couple of days ago! Do you folks have a strategy for growing it? Can I start another wood chip bed with it?

I figured I would just give it the suggest of living in a mulch bed, since I know nothing about it.

:D
@mycol seems we are on the same journey through the mycocosm!

Cheers!

My plans are to keep them alive until I get mushrooms or contamination. I'm hoping for the mushrooms! :)
