Sorry about my erroneous comment. Chicken of the woods only grow on conifers so I was wrong. Learn something new everyday. Here is a link Willong sent me. This guy know his mushrooms.

Robby, the one growing only on conifers (softwoods) was just one species (Laetiporus huroniensis) (at 3:43 in the video) of the three eastern varieties that Adam was profiling. The other two species of Laetiporus genus (Laetiporus sulphureus & Laetiporus cincinnatus) that occur in the eastern USA, and which are commonly eaten, grow on deciduous (hardwoods) trees.

Never eaten a mushroom in the wild and probably won't due to my unfamiliarity with them. But that's just me and hearing stories about organ shut down (both humans and dogs). However I did enjoy the Netflix "Fabulous Fungi". Really interesting.

Thanks, I am totally confused now. Lol! No, not really. Adam is the mushroom go to guy. Listen to the professionals and not me. I haven't killed myself... yet. I stick to chicken of the woods and giant puff balls. I have grown Oyster and shitaki mushrooms and had great success with a fruiting chamber I made. I should do shitaki again, they were good.
