    I to have been watching a spot I drive past each day, expecting a "chicken" to sprout. It appeared two days ago. Stopped and gathered enough for a meal last night.

    LOL..glad someone knows which ones to pick and ones not to pick. Myself I would be in the latter group and eat something that would make me see little green men everywhere.

    I took about a third of what was up, a good skillet full.
    It easy to gather more "chickens" or "hens" and put in frig or freezer than we will consume.

    Can you freeze them for later use if you collect a large one? I picked one last year that was huge. Cooked a good deal of it but didn't want to eat it every meal, lol. It started not tasting as good after a few days and we pitched the rest.

    Will they turn orange when they mature? Maybe they are orange already but I can't really tell.

    As promised a better pic. I'm not sure on the freezing part. I'd say so.

    I'm wondering this too. Been working with some guys that were talking about this earlier this week and was wondering how you prepared it. Same as morels?
