If this rain keeps up, I think they would be tarting to pop up soon. I usually see my first ones around the end of August/beginning of September.

Found about a dozen different trees with them growing last weekend. Some were fresh some were getting old. Picked a few pounds.

True, for whatever reason the ones growing on evergreens can make you sick. Stick to the ones on hardwoods, and you'll be fine.

Went out looking on a new piece of property the other night. Found a few small ones just getting started. Hopefully they'll be bigger when I go back.

They've been here in central pa for a little more than a month. If they're pale and stiffer it usually means bugs or old age or both. The young ones, 3 to 5 silver dollar sized bodies, are the choicest one in my opinion. I tend to find them more on western facing slopes. I have eaten sulfur shelf from pine and it is more sinewy or fibrous, didn't make me sick but why risk it in the future. Good hunting to all!

Here is a nice picture of a fresh sulfur (chicken) mushroom.

The picture in the old post may be a sulfer mushroom, but I don't know what a su

We only pick the ones with the vibrant color this on is. When they start getting dull in color they are getting old.
If you are refering as that mushroom as a hen-of-the-woods or sometimes chicken of the woods, I don't believe that would be it. Hen of the woods or what we call sheephead mushroom would look like the pic below.

The sulfur shelf is referred to by some as chicken mushroom but it is also called the chicken of the woods.

I am familiar with hen of the woods. Picked quite a few last fall.
