Are these young hens?

Recommended Posts

No experience in picking hens. These look a bit like turkey tails although they are a lot more fleshy than the turkey tails I am used to. Are these young hens? Looks like they are overgrowing a yonge tree sapling.

What kind of texture they have? Hens at this stage should be very soft. If you take a small bite of it should feel almost as bite from supermarket mushroom. To be honest they does not look like hens I find in NJ. Is tree an oak tree?

The fact that they are much thicker than normal turkey tails is what really through me off. They are also very soft and do not feel woody at all. The saplings that they are growing on are maple trees.
