I was pretty sure I heard them called Hen and Chicken of the woods. If this is the same mushroom.
I found them in Northern PA. I started carving it up and frying it and my wife said "what it he [censored] are you doing". Don't do this at home kids, but I ate it anyway. Tastes like steak. Pretty tough and stringy. Should I assume that is because this one is too mature? There were mushrooms of all varieties everywhere. Sure wish I knew more about what was edible.
Hens, or Sheepheads are nothing like a "Chicken" or "Chicken of the Woods". Chickens, when "fresh" are a brilliant Orange color. They are a polypore that grows on decaying wood. They tend to lose the color lustre are they mature.
You have a Sheephead. Tough to clean the bugs out, but great dredged in batter and fried. If you didn't like the Hen, don't eat a Chicken.
