    I ate one boletus bicolor this year. Not much reason to eat them when I had pans full of chanterelles and oysters. I was hoping to find a king bolete but as it turns out they are a conifer forest thing.

    I tried chickens in the woods again this year and I still find them to be bland in taste and texture and will probably only eat them in the future if I'm starving.

    I would like to try some hens in the woods.

    I think that those may be chickens in the woods (laetiporus sulphureus), just in a less characteristic form.

    I think those are old chickens. They fade as they get old. Or it might just be a weird color variation.

    I just found this glowing review a minute ago from the forager chef

    COOKING
    First of all, these are ok to eat, but honestly they’re not going to blow your mind.

    Most foragers say don't waste or time with this potential gastrological distresser.
