Re: ID help

Definitely not chicken of the woods. They look like Jack -O-Lanterns to me and are not edible.

Re: ID help

they are Jack-o-lanterns. Not edible. Chickens grow on a tree or a root you might not be able to see the root sometimes. Chickens also have no stems

Right, chickens are shelf mushrooms and grow in teir like formations mostly on trees, not on the ground.

Re: ID help

They're poisonous and people often mistake them for chanterelles. Won't kill you but still very toxic. The gills will glow in the dark.
