Are chicken of the woods perennial?

Recommended Posts

I found a decent flush of chickens I a tree last year and this year I have been visiting it regularly to see if it will produce this year. Do they produce every year or is it hit and miss, in your experience?

They can continually produce depending on the conditions. But, I believe, eventually the wood will break down too far and not be capable of supporting b the fungus.

Hit or miss here... like the Whisperer said, about 3 out of 5 if I'm lucky. Got a major flush going on right now on a tree that produced 40+ lbs two years ago... nothing at all last year, zero.

 

Another tree that produced HEAVY in 2016 hasn't shown anything since. Rain and timing is good this year... I'm watching it closely..

 

Personally, I'm glad they(and so many others) don't produce every year like clockwork at the same place, otherwise I wouldn't have to HUNT them, and I probably would lose interest. I'm finding that the hunt is mostly why I do it.
